Holy Week Retreat for Women
To Die with Him Is to Live with Him
Drawing on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius and the Song of Songs, Fr. Greg invites us into a mystical participation in the Passion, Death and Resurrection of Jesus. Fr. Greg's meditations will ponder the power and meaning of suffering and the new life of union with Christ...
Come and be more attuned to God’s presence and will in the circumstances of life. Becoming more conformed to Christ and His call invites us to make better choices. The Exercises are geared to an apostolic life of the active person consistently making choices to follow Christ in the Church and in the world.
