Weekend Preached Retreat for Married Couples
This is Not a silent retreat.
Theme: "Healing in a Wounded World"
February 11 - 13, 2022
The world has always had challenges. Recent events have underscored that our present time is no different. Whether we are talking about Covid, politics, the economy, or myriad other issues, we are faced with the effects of a wounded world. This has led to judgments and actions that have sadly split family, friends, and even countries apart from one another.
In October, 2020, Our Holy Father issued “Fratelli Tutti” (My brothers and sisters) as an important Christian response to our present reality. In this encyclical Pope Francis underscores the relationship we have to one another.
This includes not only our relationship as brothers and sisters, but to care for the environment, the just exchange of goods, and the effects of disparity between countries. What the Holy Father highlights is simply an elaboration of Gospel values that Jesus expressed through his ministry of preaching and healing.
How do we return to those basic gospel values so as to bring a sense of healing not only to the world but to each of us? Our recent experience of isolation and separateness reminds us of the need for Jesus and encountering him through a community that reaches out to one another with care.
It is our human interaction, based on gospel values, where we begin any healing process. This retreat will offer the values and possible ways to address this inner longing of our hearts.
The retreat for married couples has the same theme as the series of weekend retreats for men and women: "Healing in a Wounded World.” However the retreat for married couples is not silent and the Saturday dynamic includes short afternoon DVD presentations and discussion. We will celebrate daily Mass; have an opportunity for Reconciliation, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, and ample time for private time with your spouse.
