About the Event
Lent is a time when we are invited to step back a little and ponder on the wonder of God’s great love and consider how we can return love for love! You can plan to make either the weekend retreat or extend the days to give you ample time for this retreat journey. This silent retreat provides time for reflection and prayer in our inspiring chapel, on our beautiful grounds or in your comfortable, private room. You can also walk the FCJ Centre’s labyrinth or enjoy a stroll in the nearby park. The retreat is based on the principles of Ignatian Spirituality. An experienced Spiritual Director, with whom you will meet daily, will accompany you, offering guidance on prayer and supporting you as you reflect on your own retreat and life experiences and continue to discover how God truly is in all things. The Retreat begins with a 7:00pm. Friday Evening Group Opening Prayer and concludes with a Group Closing Prayer on Sunday at 1pm.
