Lenten Series 2017 – The Healing Power of Jesus

A MINI-IGNATIAN RETREAT will be offered this year during the season of Lent. Each Tuesday evening, during our weekly Marian Devotions, a series of sermons that will form the retreat presented by guest preachers. We will examine the healing power of Jesus in the Scriptures as we reflect on the healing miracles of Jesus in the Gospel narratives of Saint Matthew.

The Ignatian retreat will allow a time of prayer to reflect on the healing presence of Jesus and to encounter that Presence in our lives and to discern where the Lord is leading us.

We will seek to better know the Merciful God, Who created us in love and for love. That is the God who underlies this Lenten retreat.
