Who is the Man I Want to Be?

September 20-22, 2019

The retreat gently addresses the question Jesus poses: “What profit is there for one to gain the whole world and forfeit his life?” Take time during this weekend to reflect on your life and your commitments in the context of the Spiritual Exercises while immersed in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus.
