The Eucharist and the Spiritual Exercises
November 3 - 5, 2023
- Women's Retreat
This weekend we will be guided by the theme of Pope Francis’ Apostolic Letter: On the Liturgical Formation Of The People Of God by focusing on the interaction between the movements of the Mass and the movements of the Spiritual Exercises. “Behold, I am standing at the door, knocking. If one of you hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and dine with that person and that person with me.” – Revelation 3:20
