During the first centuries of Christianity, the forty days leading up to Holy Week took on a special significance. Those forty days are called Lent, a name taken from the Old English word meaning “spring.” The liturgical season of Lent is meant to be a time of spiritual spring-training, so to speak: a special time during which we prepare for Holy Week.

Our Lenten retreat is an opportunity to prepare our hearts to commemorate and celebrate the mystery of Easter. We hope you will join with us to pause and reflect on the last days and death of Jesus and we prepare our hearts to joyfully greet the Risen Christ on Easter morning.

The weekend will include reflective inputs, times for prayer and some quiet, and opportunity to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation or talk one-to-one with a trained Spiritual Director.

Spend this weekend in silent retreat saying “yes” to God. As St Teresa of Avila reminds us, “Prayer is the lifting up of mind and heart to God.”
