A Heart to Love, Transformed for Mission
As the Church focuses its prayer and ministries on the Extraordinary Missionary Year 2019, we seek the silence of retreat to hear God call us to an ever-deepening share in the life and mission of Jesus. This is our call as Christians – “to be with him, and to be sent” – and so we come together in this retreat to listen carefully, to open our hearts to God’s transformative love, and to respond to his invitation to New Life with a generous heart.

Our Mission with Jesus is to build up community, and he has given us many spiritual gifts to help us in this regard: patience, kindness, healing, and reconciliation. But at the root of all our gifts is God’s love. We come together as God’s stewards to contemplate that love within us and among us.
