On the Road: Encounters with Jesus

April 22-25, 2021
A 4-Day Ignatian, Silent Retreat for Men & Women

Retreat Title: On the Road: Encounters with Jesus

This retreat will contemplate a number of Gospel stories of people who encounter Jesus along the way. Those who meet Jesus may be blind or stumbling along; they may be worried about a sick family member or possessed by a demon. One may be a foreigner worried about his son. One may be an outsider woman down at the well to get her water supply. One may be a disciple who fails to recognize the one who has risen and returned to walk with him. We will ponder and question: Where do I fit in? Where am I blind or stumbling? Where do I fail to recognize Jesus?
