A Discerning Love

January 19 - 21, 2024

- Men's Retreat

Coming to know our deeper and holy desires, we discover Christ opening our everyday lives more to God’s love and grace, while drawing us towards others with mercy and courage. Through the Spiritual Exercises and contemplative prayer, this retreat calls us to a deeper response to Christ’s call through our past, present, and future. We will discern God’s activity as both abundant in all things and unique to each one of us.
