"In God's Will, There is Great Peace"
- St. Josephine Bakhita
The distractions and noise in today’s world make it difficult to hear God’s will. As we search for peace in our own lives, join Fr. Michael Barth as he explores how the fruits and gifts of the Holy Spirit assist us to discern whose voice we are hearing – whether it is from God, Satan or our own self. Talks will include study, action, and piety. The retreat will conclude with a vigil Mass.
This retreat is co-ed, being offered both in person and virtually.
