Life Transitions Retreat

We face challenging transitions and decisions in life. You might ask, “Who am I now? What’s next? How do I handle change? How do I want to live my life? How do I make the best decisions? What’s God’s plan for me now? Know that you are not alone.

Using themes of Ignatian Spirituality & discernment and other areas, this retreat entails in-depth talks, conversations, and reflections on life transitions, work, career, family, retirement, aging, caregiving, and grieving that will guide you to joy, fulfillment, and self-understanding. This retreat opens you in a new way to God’s plan, sharpens your decision-making skills, and guides you on how to move forward.

Your presenters are Fr. Paul O’Connor, SJ: JRC Director of Mission & Identity, Ignatian Spirituality Presenter, Retreat Director, Ginny Pippin: Executive Coach, Leadership Consultant, Entrepreneur, Business Owner, Ignatian Spirituality Presenter, Retreat Director, and Tom Pussel: Grief Recovery Specialist & Presenter, Cleveland Clinic Chaplain, St. Raphael Parish Outreach Director.

This retreat includes: (a) five presentations, (b) time for prayer & reflection, (c) opportunities for large and small group sharing, (d) overnight private room, and (e) meals are provided starting with dinner at 5:30pm.

This is a great opportunity for anyone who feels moved to participate in this retreat. Please email Fr. Paul O’Connor, SJ, for questions and details:
