May 29 @ 7:00pm - May 31 @ 1:00pm
NOW BEING OFFERED ONLINE for both MEN and WOMEN! VIRTUAL WEEKEND is back! Missed the FIRST VIRTUAL WEEKEND RETREAT? Please join us for our SECOND ever VIRTUAL WEEKEND RETREAT led by Rev. Steve Pugliese, S.J. We have made some tweaks based on feedback from the first retreat! We hope you will join us again or for the first time. A Minimum of 20 people required for this retreat to take place.
Theme: How To Live A Full And Happy Life!
St. Ignatius always urged retreatants to be keenly aware of their life circumstances – what was going on interiorly in the heart and exteriorly in the world and in the Church. So, during our preached virtual weekend retreat, we will look into the signs of the times by the light of faith and pray to devote ourselves more wholeheartedly to the service of the Gospel. Through our baptismal commitment we want to be attentive to the needs of all that sharing their grief and pain, their joy and hope, we may faithfully proclaim the healing that Christ brings to our fractured and broken world and Church. Through our virtual weekend retreat we want to become more courageous and bold in sharing Christ’s mission in our world today.
• 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.
