Into the Deep: A Journey into God's Freedom

November 10-12, 2017
An Ignatian, Recovery Weekend Retreat for Men

Retreat Title: Into the Deep: A Journey into God's Freedom

The Gospel story (Luke 5:4) tells us of how Peter the Fisherman was invited by Jesus to put out into deep water, where he experienced a miraculous catch of fish. With Bill W as our guide, we will reflect on how our own journeys in recovery have led us to ever deeper experiences of freedom and grace. Day by day, Step by Step, we are invited to share the miracle of recovery.
