Weekend Retreat for Men | Young Professionals



Men's Retreat | Friday-Sunday, December 10-12

A weekend silent retreat is a time of quiet reflection and prayer, away from the daily routine, to look at one’s life in light of the life of Jesus Christ: to personally examine what is going well and what needs to change, to make resolutions, and to begin again. It is a moment to grow in awareness of God’s Fatherly love, which in turn leads one to grow more in trust and love of God and His will.
