Everyone experiences troubling situations at one time or another. Disturbances and difficulties offer an opportunity for spiritual growth. Christianity refers to this experience as the paschal mystery. This process of life-death-new life mirrors the journey of Jesus and is at the heart of spiritual growth. How do we embrace the dying parts of this cycle that precede promised growth? How do we enter into the unknown, keep hope in times of suffering and discouragement? Who and what sustains and supports us until we emerge from the chrysalis of darkness into the birth of fuller compassion and deeper peace? This retreat led by Joyce Rupp will include her talks, communal prayer, quiet reflective periods and group dialogue. She will encourage participants to enter into the heart of the the Lenten journey with confidence, trusting they will find the peace and hope they desire as they renew their dedication to the Holy One.
