“Praying with the Passion”
Date: March 11th, 2017 10:00am – 3:30pm
This Lenten Retreat will focus on the days of Holy Week leading up to Easter Sunday. You will be asked to be with Peter on Holy Thursday as he is challenged to have his feet washed. We will pray together to experience Peter’s dilemma, gain new insight, and apply a deeper understanding to our lives. We will also reflect on the lives of those present at the Crucifixion. We will meditate on how we can identify with the people involved, and in so doing, help ourselves grow. And the day will conclude with quiet time as we look forward to the Hope of the Resurrection.
