The Way - For Catholics

A Close Encounter with Christ  – This warm and uplifting event is less about the daily details of your life than it is a special time to be drawn into a close encounter with Our Lord. Drawing from the story of the Samaritan woman who encounters Christ at Jacob’s well, this event recognizes that people still have a deep thirst that needs quenching … particularly in their relationships. To get to core issues, the weekend helps you go deeper into the interior life by asking:

What makes me happy and why does it elude me at times? Who is Christ to me? What does he have to say to me? How does he love me? What does he offer me? Do I really believe him? What holds me back from receiving his living water in the daily details of my life? and, on a practical level, HOW DO I INCORPORATE ALL THIS INTO MY RELATIONSHIPS?

Included in the weekend format is a fun welcome and introduction, talks, helpful exercises, small group breakouts, quiet time for reflection, meals, a full-length movie, and more. The Sacrament of Reconciliation is made available and the event ends with Mass. Sessions include:  The Way of Desire * The Way of the Bride *The Way of the Bridegroom * The Way of the Rabbi *The Way of the Cross

Available asDay of Reflection (Saturday) followed by Mass * Friday Night/Saturday with Vigil Mass * Friday – Sunday Weekend Retreat * Three Day Mission
