Spiritual Enrichment

The core teachings of Jesus are the Beatitudes, yet most Christians cannot recount them. Instead, very many still base their lives around the commandments. The beatitudes represent Jesus' vision of the life of a true believer, the way of an authentic disciple. The beatitudes will be represented as the essence of Christian discipleship, containing the necessary tools for living authentically in our complex world. The inner, outer, and communal dimensions of life will be addressed to present a holistic, evangelically-grounded spirituality geared to living in our political economy and institutional church.

Begins with supper at 6:00pm on Thursday and concludes with lunch at noon on Wednesday. Cost $555.  Deposit $150. Balance due 10 days prior to start of retreat.

Leader: Fr. Michael Crosby OFMCap

Listen to Fr. Michael Crosby speak about Genesis


We cannot create knowledge without acting. The focus of this action is (a) to transform the world, (b) to establish interdependent relationships with human beings, with the cosmos and with God.
— Paulo Friere
