On February 22 -25, 2018 we will have our Lenten "Les Misérables" 3-Night Retreat Weekend by Brother Dan Leckman, SJ. This retreat will take place from Thursday dinner through Sunday lunch. Please pre-register by 2/8/2018.

Deepen your Lenten experience with a renewed spirit!

This unique, reflective, interactive, expanded weekend retreat will incorporate themes from the famous movie/musical, “Les Misérables” (also known as “Les Mis”). Retreatants will explore the grace of God alongside their fallen state, identify opportunities given to experience redemption, and learn how to be courageous enough to start another chapter in the story of their lives.

During this three-night extended weekend retreat, participants will explore how different characters of the story, “Les Misérables”, can help them reflect not only about their faith journey during the Lenten season, but also ponder themes of suffering, forgiveness, renewal, revolution, and love. The retreat will include a viewing of the video on Thursday evening, with Friday through Sunday to include specific sessions and group discussions, time for private reflection and contemplation, and liturgical celebrations.
