How to encounter The Lord at retreat

Worship in spirit and in truth

Adore the Blessed Sacrament

We know that Jesus Christ’s presence changes things—the atmosphere, people, circumstances. So we know we must be in His presence to be changed people.

Enter into His Word

We as Catholics know the truth and foundation of the Word of God, and we have seen our Lord change hearts when we begin to read His word. We desire to lay a foundation of prayer, praise, and reception of Scripture.

Receive His Grace

The Sacraments are given to us by our Lord in order for us to experience the fullness of life and freedom. We will enter into the Sacrament of Penance and the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

THE WEEKEND FAR EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS (JUST LIKE THE LORD DOES).

It was consoling, healing, encouraging, grounding, and exactly what I needed in many more ways. I’ve had a ton of life changing situations this last year and this weekend was an opportunity to breathe and be renewed in the Lord’s great mercy and goodness. The Eucharistic procession was powerful and Jesus graciously poured out a lot of healing power through it. Thank you for the way in which you all clearly let the Spirit move and direct the weekend.
