A retreat is time for God, a time for assessing our relationship with God. We spend time with the people we cherish and respect. We spend time with God. A retreat nurtures our spiritual life in an environment away from the ordinary distractions of life. In the Scriptures, we read that Jesus would simply go off and pray. Keep Reading…
Retreat Season 2019-2020:
“Eucharist: Blessed & Broken ~ Shared & Sent“
The most inspiring grace concerning our Catholic faith is how we gather around the sacred altar of Christ to be strengthened by him in the beauty and miracle of the Eucharist. He is who united us. He is who loves us and strengthens us in our time of need and in moments of thanksgiving.
Words cannot express this great mystery and at times we call it “The Lord’s Supper” because it started at the supper Jesus ate with his disciples the night before He died.
We say it is the “Blessed Sacrament” because we thank God for the blessings of our world, lives and what we have received through Jesus Christ.
In the “breaking of the bread” we recognize Him as he broke bread with his followers on the road to Emmaus.
The “Holy Sacrifice” recalls Jesus’ gift of Himself to God, his Father and sharing of his sacrifice with us.
“The Mass” comes from the latin word “missio” which means mission because this sacrament sends us into the community to enrich it with faith and love.
Come and explore all that the Spiritual Center provides. It is a special place for people to meet and for the Holy Spirit to move in us.
The Spiritual Center is a place where learning, rest, healing and fellowship can touch our lives.
We look forward to welcoming you to this “holy ground.”
