About the Event
Easter is a season of great hope. For people who desire to make this Easter a time of deepening their spirituality with daily prayer, reflection, group sharing, and spiritual direction, we are offering a 5-Week Easter Ignatian Retreat in Everyday Life.
Easter is a time or renewal and rebirth! Indeed, it is a season of hope. In these times, this retreat can provide an opportunity to restart and/or renew your spiritual growth. This group retreat at the FCJ Centre is inspired by and rooted in the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, and is based on the work of Joseph Tetlow, SJ. While this retreat requires a serious commitment of prayer and reflection time, it provides an opportunity to deepen your relationship with God and to share your spiritual journey with others. Through this time of contemplation, prayer, and reflection, you will discover how you can more easily discover God in all things and return love for love! The weekly group meeting with your co-retreatants and spiritual directors enables you to relish the way God is working in your life and in the lives of others and invites you to further growth. Faith sharing is always such a rich experience!
This is a 5-week program running weekly on Mondays, except first week which is a Tuesday. Dates of the program are Apr 19, Apr 25, May 2, 9, 16.
