WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT DURING DIFFICULT TIMES
Do not anticipate the unpleasant events of this life by anxiety; rather anticipate them with the perfect hope that, as they happen, God, to whom you belong, will protect you. He has protected you up to the present moment; just remain firmly in the hands of His providence and He will help you in all situations and at those times when you find yourself unable to walk, He will carry you.

Theme: Being Still
We began the year 2020 reflecting on letting "stillness"
become our way of being, living and acting. As we have
faced the many challenges of this year, being still has helped
us to know our challenges and face them without fear or anxiety. Being still enables us to be more of what we can be,
what we are made to be, what God calls us to be.
Join us as we strive to "be still" and continue
to focus on what is important and move into the future
with confidence in divine providence.
SEPTEMBER 28 - OCTOBER 2, 2020
This retreat will take you on ajourney with St. John the Evangelist through his Gospel.
The focus is to meet Jesus though the eyes of John as he presents Jesus as the Eternal Word and the
Light of the World that calls us to fullness of life, fullness of joy and complete union with the Father.
The retreat will offer meditations on Jesus as the way, the truth and the life.
