May 5-7, 2017 – an Ignatian, Silent Weekend Retreat with Fr. David Shields, SJ
Retreat Title: Pilgrim Conversations on the Road with Jesus

Not all travel is the same: The goal of a trip is to get from where I am to my destination.Tours are a series of per-scheduled stops to visit various significant sites. But a pilgrimage finds its meaning in the trip itself, in the encounters and conversations with other pilgrims. Pilgrimages are for savoring. In this retreat we will pilgrimage with Jesus through the questions he puts to his companion disciples as they journey to Jerusalem.

Groups attending: Lady of Peace, St Mary of Vernon (Women), Holy Name Cathedral (Women), Heart of Mary, Deanery II-B Women, Catholic Community of Northbrook
