This time of rest and retreat is a joyous celebration of the holy names and titles of Jesus, both ancient and new. Participants are guided to recognize the abiding presence of God’s love in their own hearts and the hearts of others. This presentation is based on the book, At the Name of Jesus: The Way, the Truth, the Life. The retreat will include presentation, group dialogue and time for personal reflection.
Guided by artist Bro. Mickey McGrath. Check-in begins at 3pm, dinner will be served at 6pm and the first presentation will begin at 7pm on Friday.
