Spend some personal and communal reflection time growing in awareness and responsiveness to the pleas of Pope Francis and other spiritual leaders: to experience God’s presence in creation and to care for our sacred, common home.
“The universe unfolds in God, who fills it completely. Hence there is a mystical meaning to be found in a leaf, in a mountain trail, in a dewdrop, in a poor person’s face. The ideal is not only to pass from exterior to the interior to discover the action of God in the soul, but also to discover God in all things”.
Participants are invited to an in-depth experience and integration of the three movements of a Laudato Si’ Retreat. Hearing Creations Song; Hearing Creations Cry; and continuing with Hope and Action, our process of eco-spiritual conversation.
This semi-silent retreat includes ample time in our beautiful natural surroundings to walk the trails and the Labyrinth, and to sit, swim, contemplate, and bond with God in all beings.
There are no prerequisites to attend, all are welcome!
