“God offers us a future full of hope
and human beings are the words God uses
to tell the story of grace.”
– Mary Catherine Hilkert, OP
Scripture holds the premiere stories of grace that teach us about embracing suffering and being heartened by hope.
This retreat will offer participants stories of Scripture as we glean how our ancestors in the faith tended chaos, confusion, loss, grief, and uncertainty. The basis of this retreat will be how they came to live in Hope.
