This week’s retreat

“God Announces the Way”

When we look at a friend’s photo album, some of the most intriguing pictures are the ones of our friend’s grandparents and parents. We stare into those faces not only to look for some resemblance but also to discern something of the character, the traits, the personality of our friend.

Participate this week

Previous weeks’ retreats

This retreat is designed for people who can’t attend a traditional retreat. Experience a relationship with God coming alive in the midst of everyday life. Come to know a freedom and peace too often out of reach in the modern world. A simple Guide each week places themes, reflections, questions and desires into the background of our busy lives. We learn to find greater focus and to let one week build upon another.

Any busy person can do this retreat in the background of a very full life. Thousands of others have done so.
