Women's Weekend Palm Sunday Retreat

Date: April 3 - 5:30pm to April 5 - 12:00pm


“The Mystery of the Passion: Surrendering to the Beloved”


The story of the Passion, Death and Resurrection of Jesus is a story of love and self-gift. As we grow more mature in our relationships, we recognize that there are “seasons” in our hearts: times of growth and fruitfulness; as well as times of pruning and sacrifice. So too in the relationship of prayer and the spiritual journey – as well as in the process of discernment. In this retreat we will explore ways in which God leads us in the difficult seasons of our hearts and calls us to deep trust in His love.
