In the Footsteps of Jesus

Walking in the footsteps of Jesus is a way of life.  It is about being in relationship, letting go, letting ourselves be transformed into His image with each step we take.  Do you find yourself moving closer to Jesus?  Are you encountering Him anew each day?  Are you becoming more and more like Him?  Come as we explore what it means to walk in the footsteps of Jesus.  We will look at the struggles, the joy and the grace of being a disciple of Christ.

DECEMBER

What Are You Waiting For?
Thursday, December 6, 2018
with 
Diane Dube, p.m.

Advent is a time of great anticipation!  We await a rebirthing of our God into our lives! But surely, God does not repeat the miracle of the Nativity of Bethlehem.  How then, is God born anew for us?  Using the titles of Jesus, such as: Image of the Invisible God, Wonderful Counselor, the Door, Anchor, and more, we will come to see that our multifaceted God can be all that we need today.  Together, let’s touch the longing in our hearts and welcome a fresh revelation of the God who comes! What revelation do you need?  What are you waiting for?

Cost:  $55.00 includes hot meal
Arrival 9:45 AM ~ Please bring a Bible and a journal if you wish.
Begins promptly at 10:00 AM  and ends at 3:30 PM.

MARCH 2019

The Cross of Jesus Comes in Many Forms
Wednesday, March 13, 2019
with 
Ann Boyle, RSR

Jesus says: “Take up your cross and follow me!” As we enter into the Season of Lent, let us contemplate the Cross of Jesus, which can appear in many forms.  We experience and know the sufferings personally and also from those around us.  What does it mean to carry one’s cross?  How are we called, like Simon of Cyrene, to help carry the cross of another?  The day will include short presentations, prayer, time for personal reflection and sharing.

Cost:  $55.00 includes hot meal
Arrival 9:45 AM ~ Please bring a Bible and a journal if you wish.
Begins promptly at 10:00 AM  and ends at 3:30 PM.

** Over-night Option available.  See note below for details. 

MAY 2019

He is Risen! 
And, in Galilee, You will See Him!  (Mt. 28:7)
Wednesday, May 15, 2019
with
Aline Plante, p.m.

The Resurrection of Jesus is indeed the most life-changing event in the lives of His followers!  The women at the tomb were the first to grasp what had happened…others took longer to come around and believe. What about us?  Does the Resurrection really affect us, change us, transform us?  Or, does Easter Sunday come and go and then … ‘We’re done’?  One more time, our Lenten readings, fastings and practices come to a close and our busy lives go on. But, how is He present with us now? Does He still touch our hearts today? How do we see and recognize Him in the Galilee of our everyday life?  

On this day of retreat, we shall see and meditate on how in the Easter appearances, the Risen Jesus reaches out to His friends and how He is present with us now. Come experience the power of the Resurrection! (The film, Risen  (2016) with Joseph Fiennes will also be viewed.)

Cost:  $55.00 includes hot meal
Arrival 9:45 AM ~ Please bring a Bible and a journal if you wish.
Begins promptly at 10:00 AM  and ends at 3:30 PM

JUNE 2019

What Does God Want Anyway?
Thursday, June 6, 2019
with
Diane Dube, p.m.

Can we know God’s will for our lives?  Yes! AND No! We may not know as much of the detail as we would sometimes want, but we sure can get a direction in which to move.  By looking at our Christian understanding of who God is, by examining the general motivations that moved Jesus, and with the help of some of the principles put forth by Ignatius of Loyola, we can learn to see that God does indeed make known to us a personal plan – one that has us moving forward into the future of hope and promise.  Come and join us for the day and improve your spiritual sense of direction!

Cost:  $55.00 includes hot meal
Arrival 9:45 AM ~ Please bring a Bible and a journal if you wish.
Begins promptly at 10:00 AM  and ends at 3:30 PM
