Paint Me a Picture, Lord.
with Fr. Richard M. Sudlik, OMI

Paint me a picture!  In the parables, Jesus does just that – He paints us word pictures.  These word pictures can fire our imagination, therefore, touch our hearts as well as our heads.  During this retreat, we will revisit the parables that Jesus used to instruct us and let these word pictures teach us and touch us once again.

Cost:  $580.00
Arrival: 3:00 PM / Saturday
Departure: Saturday after breakfast

JUNE 16 – 23, 2018
Mysticism of Desire:  The Way of Spiritual Intimacy
with Daniel Renaud, OMI

This retreat will rehabilitate desire as the spiritual energy nourishing our spiritual lives. Through prayer and discernment, we will deepen our intimacy with God.  As we companion closely with St. Ignatius and with other mystics, we will honor our true reality as beloved people while unmasking our many false religious imaginings.  We will see how in letting the Spirit of Jesus rise from our depths, our lives can irrigate our parched communities and our world.

Cost:  $ 580.00
Arrival: 3:00 PM / Saturday
