Life in Christ: Growing in Holiness and Prayer Silent Preached Retreat
June 15-18, 2017 | $300 (Commuter Rate: $200)
Our entire Christian spiritual life consists in one goal: holiness. Our Lord commands us: “Be perfect, just as your heavenly Father is perfect.” (Matt 5:48) The holiness Christ desires for us is attainable only through supernatural grace and a life of prayer. We will reflect upon the true nature of holiness, how to grow in holiness and union with God through conversion (kenosis), abandonment and deep prayer.
