Return to Jesus: A Lenten Silent Retreat
Befriending Jesus and being befriended by Jesus on life’s journey
Friday, March 27, 5:30 pm to Sunday, March 29, 2 pm
- Seeing Jesus’ humanity reflected in ours, and ours reflected in His
- Experiencing Jesus’ embrace of weakness and suffering, and of us
- Recognizing the beauty in brokenness – both the world’s, and our own
- Receiving God’s invitation to be His companion in places of pain and frustration
SILENCE is like a container that holds the space necessary to quiet our souls and gently move us from a busy life into an inner openness to the movement of the Spirit. Together we will journey into silence through shared contemplative experiences and personal time apart. This retreat is suitable for those who are new to silence as well as those who desire to deepen their practice of silence. Guidance will be offered to support your times of personal solitude and silence.
