Lenten Retreat Series at the Passionist Earth and Spirit Center

Sundays 1-5 PM: March 1st, 15th & 29th, 2020


The invitation to Prayer, Fasting and Almsgiving are not unique to the Christian Way. They are also foundational practices, shared by many of the great religious traditions. This series of afternoon retreats reframes and refreshes these three touchpoints as expressions of the Lenten invitation to wholeness. 


Through guided meditation, centering, sharing and presentation, we will explore each of these practical invitations into fullness of life. While these three themes are interconnected and cyclical, each afternoon retreat also stands alone, with its own unique charism (spirit-gift) and challenges for our time.   



March 1st:     Reachable - Openhearted

March 15th:  Receptive - Brokenhearted       

March 29th:  Responsible - Wholehearted   


Cost: Individual class $35 earlybird, $45 two weeks before each session, and package price of $95 earlybird, $125 after April 16.
