Presented by M. Bridget Brennan & Jerome Shen
In this weekend retreat, the retreat presenters, Bridget & Jerry, will invite couples to reflect on their marriage journey. And in that reflection come to understand more clearly how God works in and through our very ordinary married lives. God is Love and we who dwell in Love dwell in God and God in us. That is the story of married couples. We love one another and in loving one another we come to know more deeply God’s transforming love in our lives.
If this is your first married couples retreat…There will be a blend of presentations, time for couples to reflect on their own, time for prayer and an opportunity to simply have some “down time” to relax. A step away from the rushed lives that so many of us live. Please join us.
Cost: $500-560/couple based on single or double occupancy rooms.
Registration opens Feb 1st: Program may sell out; first-come, first-served.
