How does God view our sin? What does it mean to say that God is Love and Mercy? Tackle these deep questions at the heart of Lent with the wisdom of Blessed Julian of Norwich. We will dive into several of the 16 visions of the Lord she recorded in "Revelations of Divine Love" over 650 years ago and discover their meaning for us today as we journey toward Easter with Jesus.
A day or evening of reflection, grounded in the Jesuit tradition, is a shorter version of the Ignatian Weekend Retreat. Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, a day or evening program is sure to give you the peace and serenity needed to be still and to rest in God's loving embrace.
Your day or evening of reflection includes thematic talks from our skilled Retreat Leaders, time for private prayer, celebration of Mass and a meal.
