Discover Retreat

“There’s nothing more practical than finding God, than falling in love…” - Fr. Pedro Arrupe

What if love was not something I attained, but a journey to be discovered? The adventure that awaits has the capacity to transform everything. Join us as we create a non-judgmental and open space as we encounter God’s invitation to courageously love.  

Discover the journey that awaits!
