December 11 – 13, 2020 – VIRTUAL WEEKEND RETREAT – Parables of Mercy
December 11 @ 7:00pm - December 13 @ 1:00pm
For both Men and Women. A Minimum of 20 people required for this retreat to take place.
Led by Judy Schiavo, Spiritual Director
We know that Jesus did not tell parables to entertain us. No, Jesus wanted to shake us into a deeper experience of God. You are invited to spend a weekend in reflective prayer on the parables of mercy that Jesus shared—parables that could help us during these turbulent times. How can mercy become an integral part of our lives?….Come, listen, reflect, pray.
• This retreat will be added to your weekend retreat count contributing toward certificates and awards.
• This is a great way to introduce someone NEW to the Loyola retreat experience – if they have been hesitant! Sign up together! Invite a spouse, partner, family member or relative in another state, friend, co-worker, neighbor! You can all participate together VIRTUALLY! We may be socially distanced but we are spiritually connected!
The VIRTUAL RETREAT will be structured the same as a weekend retreat and will begin Friday evening at 7pm. It will be offered using ZOOM, but DO NOT BE AFRAID! You do not have to own ZOOM to participate or be tech savvy. Upon registering, you will be sent a link to the ZOOM retreat along with an alternate call-in number. So if you are NOT TECH SAVVY, you can simply call-in via phone and participate this way. It is very simple. You will also be sent by EMAIL the schedule; all materials needed for the retreat along with the Loyola Retreat Manual.
