Answering the Call to Labor with Christ

September 28-30, 2018
An Ignatian, Silent Weekend Retreat for Women

Retreat Title: Answering the Call to Labor with Christ

St. Ignatius understood that each of us - not just a small group of select people - are called to participate with Christ in the building of God’s Kingdom. What does that call look like today? And what does it take for us to respond wholeheartedly to that invitation? This weekend we will explore key elements of the Spiritual Exercises aimed at helping us grow in our response to God’s invitation.

Groups Attending: Individuals, St. John Neumann (St. Charles); Catholic Community of Northbrook; Divine Mercy, Letty and Friends, Our Lady of Perpetual Help Devotion Ministries
