An Ignatian, Silent Weekend Retreat for Men
The only goal of the Christian life is to follow the Lord's pattern, as he became human, we are to become "divine." This means that at baptism we received all we needed to become more and more the children of God and through the Eucharist, our own prayer and regular retreats, we further that identity as sons and daughters of God, thus sharing in Jesus' own life before the Father as well as before Mary our Mother in the order of grace.
Groups Attending: Individuals, K of C Holy Ghost Council 4977 (St. Theresa, Palatine), St. Ignatius College Prep Parents and Alumni
