Lent is a special time in the Church calendar. This season of Lent is a time to slow our pace, look inward, listen for the voice of God, and allow the Holy Spirit to help us in our transformation into the likeness of Jesus.

As Jesus was raised from death, we too experience spiritual dying and rising throughout our lives. The Lenten disciplines of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving helps to renew our Christian vision and life. This retreat will help the retreatants to deepen their relationship to Jesus, our Blessed Mother and the Church.
