Walking to Calvary with Christ
April 18-20, 2019
This Holy Week retreat will emphasize the Christian’s ultimate role to become another Christ. As we follow Jesus we are thereby also called to imitate and thus become ever more like him. To do that we need the grace of the Church, the scriptures and God’s people–my brothers and sisters. The days of Holy Week will focus on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola (1491-1556) to evaluate our interior lives in terms of our fidelity to be with Christ on his way to the Cross.
