Our world is noisy. Our lives are busy. We often long for some quiet. Here’s an opportunity to MAKE IT HAPPEN! Come for dinner on Friday evening. Meet others who will spend a quiet day with you. Spend time Friday evening and Saturday listening to the quiet around you in this beautiful natural setting. Allow it to enter into conversation with the quiet within you. Gather once or twice, if you choose, to share with others what you are hearing as you listen. Return home refreshed after dinner on Saturday evening.
Joyful Witness – Retreat Day – November 18, 2014
10:00 am to 3:00 pm.
Fee: $30.00 (Includes lunch)
Facilitator: Lorraine d’Entremont, SC
In his apostolic exhortation The Joy of the Gospel (Evangelii Gaudium), Pope Francis highlights joy as a key component of living the Christian life and making it known.
This day of reflection will have time for identifying and praying with gospel texts that give joy and inspiration, and considering ways we can convey this joy in our personal and communal lives. There will be times for input, personal reflection and group sharing.
