Weekend Retreats

 

MAY 5 – 7, 2017

True Freedom ~ Identifying the Voice of God …and following it
with Michele DeSimone

True freedom and happiness come from allowing God to be our Guide through this life.  But, of the many voices we hear, both internal and external, how do we determine which is the Voice of God?  On this weekend, we will explore the many voices and their effects on how we live.  When we determine how to identify God’s Voice, we will then be on a path to live more closely and intimately with our God who loves us beyond all telling; our God, who wants only the best for us; our God who wants us to be truly free.

JULY 28 – 30, 2017

Deepening Connection for Married Couples through Prayer and Communications Skills
with Bill Sheehan, O.M.I. and Rebecca Hecht, LICSW

As humans, our God created us to be wired for loving connection with Him and one another.  From the moment of birth, we seek this closeness in the warm arms of our mother and father.  Over the course of our lives, we find ourselves seeking that “just right” balance of meeting needs on our own and with loved ones.  Many of us experience frustration because in growing up, we have not learned optimal ways to reach out and find the connections that we long for.

In this workshop, couples will be afforded the opportunity to join in prayer and thereby tune into their innate knowing of how to deepen in love for one another.  They will also be taught deep communication and listening skills to help facilitate the process of healing past the hurts, and enter into a bond of healing unity.

Arrival: Friday / 6:30 PM:  $340.00 ~ Program begins 7:15 PM
Arrival: Friday / 4:00 PM includes 5:30 evening meal:  $360.00
Departure: Sunday / 1:00 PM
