Brokenness Made Whole: Living the Everydayness of the Paschal Mystery
Every day, we are invited into the Paschal Mystery experience of Service, Surrender, Suffering and Surprise. The focus of this retreat is to call us to live deeply and consciously into the Jesus experience of self-sacrificing Love. It is not a one-time experience but an everyday spirit-filled journey into the heart of God.
Together with celebration of the Holy Week liturgies, this retreat will involve short reflections, guided meditations, visuals and music.
This is a silent retreat and includes Holy Week liturgies. Check-in begins at 4pm on Thursday and an introduction session will be held at 5pm. The retreat will end with lunch after Mass on Easter Sunday. Guided by Fr. Phil Cover and Sr. Eileen Quinn.
A commuter option is also available. Please contact Jen Murphy, Manager of Marketing & Events, at Jennifer.Murphy@BonSecoursRCC.org if you are interested.
