Peace Be with You

May 3-5, 2019
An Ignatian, Semi-Silent Weekend Retreat for Couples

Retreat Title: Peace Be with You

Each year the pace of life increases and new challenges appear that can make peace seem more a wish than a reality. This retreat will focus on how Jesus sent the Holy Spirit (John 20:19-23) transforming the apostles “behind locked doors for fear of the Jews” into bold risk takers rooted in a deep peace not shaken even by imprisonment, violence or death. In this semi-silent couples retreat we will open our hearts to a peace deeper than our fears, a peace that heals our hurts, and an empowering peace as the Spirit sends us forth to be peacemakers in our anxious world.

Groups Attending: Married Couples
