Seeking Friendship with Christ as Sons & Daughters of Our Father Men's and Women's Silent Retreat - July 12-14

Prayer is the most proper activity of a baptized soul.  As breathing is a necessary part of bodily life, so prayer is "respiration" in the life of grace.  Prayer may be understood simply as opening the will to God--but as simple as this may seem, it is not always easy to live. 

In this retreat, join Fr. Daniel Hanley to set aside time to understand the life of God within us and open ourselves to the movement of prayer.  True prayer always comes from and returns to the Eucharist and bears the fruit of love of God and of neighbor. Our goal in this retreat is to form practical resolutions to help us to live in more constant union with Jesus.

Retreat cost is $285 and financial assistance may be available.
