RETREAT CONTENT

DAY ONE:

Paying Attention to God

It’s been written that the primary work of love is paying attention to the beloved. That certainly holds true in our relationship with God. Taking time out of our routine, even if it’s just a few minutes, is a practice to be nurtured in our lives of faith. Prayer is often not easy with its many distractions and can take many forms, but it’s truly at the heart of our faith.

DAY TWO:

Staking Our Lives on Jesus

“There is nothing that can ever separate us from the love of God,” writes St. Paul. While we are all flawed, broken, sinful human beings, we will never be rejected by God. The God revealed by Jesus of Nazareth is the God who reaches out to us in our sin, calls us to holiness, healing our hearts of stone. It is God’s unconditional love that will heal our broken lives.

DAY THREE:

Sent As Disciples of Hope

The power of God’s grace can penetrate even the darkest moments in our lives. As followers of Jesus of Nazareth, we not only preach the Paschal Mystery, but we walk that path from death to resurrection. Every one of us will experience those moments that break our hearts, that cause us doubt and confusion. But in the infinite wisdom of God, even our darkest moments are holy. That is the hope that we bring to our sisters and brothers.

ACCESSING THE CONTENT

The day before the retreat begins you will receive a link to the materials – both the reflection videos and the retreat workbook/journal – along with a password to access them. This link will expire two days after the final Zoom conversation. That means you’ll actually have a week to spend with the prayer reflections and music.

You can start the retreat and pray through the reflections on your own schedule and at your own pace. Take your time. Beauty never hurries and neither does grace. 

LIVE ZOOM CONVERSATION

You can choose among the given times to join a conversation with others who made the retreat during the same period as you. Even if you don’t wish to speak, this is an opportunity to be with others as a community of faith.

You will receive an email beforehand with a link to the Zoom meeting. If you’re not familiar with the Zoom platform there will be someone there to help you manage. 

Dan will be there to help direct the conversation and share his own faith.
