Called into Life

Monday 5 June, 5.30pm – Friday 9 June, 9am

Cost: $400 (live-in) or $280 (live-out)

Inner Peace in Friendship with Jesus – a Taste of this First Spiritual Exercises Retreat, where I become aware that I live in the stream of God’s love and can allow God to teach me about friendship, by meeting the gentle human face of God in Jesus. ‘Some friends play at friendship but a true friend sticks closer than one’s nearest kin’ (Proverbs 18:24). Using sacred symbols for each exercise, we begin with the first acts of Divine friendship; the creation of the universe and ourselves, and end with the last act of friendship; our eternal union with the Trinity. In the core of the retreat, we pray ‘friendship’ exercises that help people we know in need. Come and experience this journey into Divine friendship.
