A Day of Reflection for Men & Women

Retreat Master: Fr. J. Michael Sparough, SJ
Retreat Title: Discerning Your Decisions in the Ignatian Tradition

All of us have important decisions to make - decisions that radically alter our lives. Yet without a sound process in place for making these key decisions, we will never feel fully confident that our decision was what God truly desired for us.

Join us for a day of reflection drawing on insights from Fr. Michael Sparough, SJ's best-selling book, What's Your Decision? Fr. Michael will present an "Ignatian toolkit" for discernment and decision-making, leading us in a series of prayer exercises designed to help us listen to God in the deeper parts of our being.  The day will include a workshop, time for quiet reflection, Mass, and lunch.

Program Cost: $50.00 (includes Lunch)
