What if I did the "As I Have Done For You" retreat last Lent?
If you journeyed with us last Lent, we invite you to embrace the value of repetition, just as it is used in the Ignatian Spiritual Exercises. Each year during the Lenten season in the Catholic Church, we recall and walk with Jesus during the final days of his ministry and life with us. Each year we are in a different place in our faith lives and will hear Jesus’ call to us in a different way. We hope to walk with you again.
How does the retreat work?
This unique online retreat provides an individual plan for prayer, incorporating a variety of contemplative prayer methods.
