They Departed for Their Country by Another Way
– Matthew 2:12
January 6 - 8, 2023
This retreat is for men who are searching for the wisdom of the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius. The men may come with their personal treasure as did the Magi – to have them taken by Jesus, reverently blessed, broken from misuse to be shared with God’s people. Those making the retreat will come from their country prayerfully, reflecting on their reception of Gods gifts and will be encouraged to share them with God’s people another way. The retreatants will be encouraged to spend time reflecting on their journeys both coming and going.
