The Mountaintop: The Place Where God Dwells

February 21-23, 2020
An Ignatian, Silent Weekend Retreat for Men

Retreat Title: The Mountaintop: The Place Where God Dwells

Throughout the Bible God reveals himself on mountaintops. In fact, we speak of "mountaintop experiences" in our lives--those moments where we have had a deep experience of God. This retreat will follow the prayers of The Spiritual Exercises in hopes that through silence and prayer these will be days of encountering our God who desires to reveal himself to us.

Groups Attending: Individuals, St. John Vianney (Lockport), St. Alphonsus (Prospect Hts), Sacred Heart/Divine Mercy (Winnetka),
