Grace has been called truly amazing, for we have experienced it as such. It is undeserved, beyond our control or manipulation, and given when we least expect it. Our capacity to receive grace, to be available and open to is, and to recognize it when it comes is dependent on our open-heartedness, poverty of spirit, and awareness. Explore the ins and outs of grace during these retreat days, how we might block or refuse it, how we may be instruments of it, and where it has amazingly appeared in our lives.
This is a silent retreat, with a morning conference and evening prayer, as well as the opportunity to meet with the presenter/director in the afternoon for spiritual direction.
Time: Sun., June 18 at 5 pm to Thurs., June 22 at 11 am
Presenter: Janet Corso
Fee: $350 Registration deposit $75, full payment due by June 8. (All meals included)
