Thursday, September 19 from 9:00am - 3:00pm
Join us to pray with and for the Earth during the Season of Creation, an ecumenical celebration proclaimed by Pope Francis in which we are called to contemplate “the world as a sacrament of communion” (Laudato Si, § 9).
The retreat is an invitation to return to the awe and wonder of finding God in an expanding universe. Through individual reflection and prayer with and in the 57 acres of woods and meadows at JRC, you will contemplate “the mystical meaning to be found in a leaf, in a mountain trail, in a poor person’s face" (Laudato Si § 233).
