Sabbath is a Divine gift, as well as commandment. It is ordered to nurture the soul, replenish our tired mind, body and spirit, and reconnect with God, self and others. On this Sabbath retreat day, we will take time to rest and rejuvenate as we pray, spend time in silence and reflection, share the experience of the day with others in the group and listen to the still, small voice of God within. As we approach Holy Week and Easter, we are invited to reflect on the Paschal Mystery of dying and rising in our own lives, the transforming and saving grace offered us by Christ to heal our hearts, relationships and world. The day will include the opportunity to attend the Sunday liturgy and lunch. Guided by Amy Kulesa.
