Each day we enter a new moment in the gift of our life.  We look at the past with a sense of enlightened understanding for all that has been.  We look at the present with a sense of God’s affirmation of us in the here and now.  We move into the future with hope as we explore with renewed faith and trust new possibilities for our life.

The retreat will consist of presentations, daily Eucharist, opportunity for the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Anointing of the Sick, and plenty of time for private prayer and rest. The retreat is designed to be experienced in an atmosphere of silence.
