An Ignatian, Silent Weekend Retreat for Men
Using various stories from the gospel of St Luke, we will read and consider the issues and themes that Jesus talked about when he was invited out. By accompanying Jesus at important meals, we can come to know his mind and heart more intimately, deepen our love for him and strengthen our level of discipleship as Catholic Christians.
Groups Attending: Individuals, St. John Vianney (Lockport), St. Alphonsus (Prospect Hts), Divine Savior Men (Norridge), Divine Mercy - Winnetka (Sacred Heart/St. Phillip the Apostle), Catholic Community of Northbrook (Men), St. Ann (Channahon)
