This weekend retreat is designed for participants to grow in relationship with Christ by experiencing His love through Scripture and sharing with each other.
The sessions will focus on: Plan of God in my life; Early life of Jesus; Jesus’ Public Ministry; Passion and Death of Christ; The Risen Christ; Doing the work of Christ; and Celebrating the Journey with Christ.
Individuals may be familiar with the 19th Annotation, which is a 30- day retreat of the Ignation Spiritual Exercises. This session is known as the 18th Annotation, which is an abbreviated experience and also follows the life of Christ.
Each session will consist of an Opening Prayer; Orientation of the prayers and prayer type (imaginative prayer, Lectio Divina) to be reflected upon; Faith Sharing; Closing Prayer. You will need to bring your own Bible, as you will be praying with different Scripture passages and then reflecting on them. Please bring a journal or notebook to capture any personal faith discoveries.
Date & Time: Friday, July 26, through Sun., July 28, from 1pm to 7pm
