5-PART SERIES (Thursdays)
July 16, 23, 20 & August 6, 13
9:30 AM - 12:00 PM
Living contemplatively simply means being awake to the "what is" of my life, right here, right now and in this moment, finding God...a God, a LOVE...who cannot be absent.
During this 5-part guided retreat, we will discover practices or ways of paying attention to our "ordinary lives," noticing God in our midst and listening for Love's invitations.

JULY 24-26, 2020
Sr. Ann Marie Walsh, fcJ & Patricia Harasym
As we continue to live in, and through all that COVID-19 offers and takes away, we might be noticing change within us, and through us. Many of us are reflecting more on life and realizing that God gifts us in many different ways. Yes, God allows us to grow in many and varied ways! So, perhaps you would like to take some "stillness" time to ponder on the may gifts of God by setting time aside for an online retreat.
Laudato Si - Our Common Home
AUGUST 16-22, 2020
Retreat Director: Marilou Le Geyt
The retreat program, grounded in Sacred Scripture, Catholic Social Teaching and the best available science, will help participants start, or continue, on their journey towards a deep ecological conversion in response to ‘the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor.” The objective of the retreat is to lead us deeper into relationship with Christ, who then invites us to love Him through loving creation and all our brothers and sisters.
Thank you so much for hosting us. Everything was wonderful! We had a great time, the food was Marvelous, and everyone really enjoyed it.
