2024/2025 Sponsored Retreats

July 8 – July 14, 2024 | Presenter: Terry Hershey

THE GIFT OF ENOUGH

We know there is power in the word enough…

We carry this capacity to honor the present into every encounter and relationship, meaning that we honor the dignity that is reflected by God’s goodness and grace. Every encounter, every relationship, is a place to include; invite mercy; encourage; receive; heal; reconcile; repair; say thank you; pray; celebrate; refuel and restore. We all need a time and a place that allows us—gives us permission—to pause, and to embrace the gift—to befriend our own heart.

Our time together will include presentations, group reflection and discussion, prayer and Eucharistic liturgy.

Retreat begins at 4:00pm on Monday, July 8th; registration is 2:00-3:00pm. Retreat ends with brunch on Sunday July 14th.

RESIDENT: $850

VIRTUAL: $150 (Live streaming – one main session daily)
