A Discerning Love

February 12 - 13, 2021

Coming to know our deep and holy desires, we discover Christ opening up 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 seeks to elicit in us a deeper response to Christ’s call through our past, present, and future. We discern God’s activity as both abundant in all things and particular to each one of us.
