An Easter Triduum Retreat

Date: April 18 - 4:00pm to April 21 - 10:00am


Sharing the Passion and Resurrection of Jesus

In the most solemn and beautiful celebrations of the year, Christians enter into the great mystery of God’s unconditional love. We are invited to be with Jesus, to feel with Jesus, and to embrace the fullness of his love.

Jesus empties himself fully at Calvary and drinks the chalice of our human poverty, but transforms sin and death into New Life. Through Him, with Him and In Him, we are re-created as Sons and Daughters of the Father, Brothers and Sisters of God-made-human, and rejoice in the joy and healing of the Spirit.

In this retreat, which will center on the beauty of Jesus’ gift of himself to us in the liturgies of the Easter Triduum, we will share in the mystery of our salvation.
