This retreat day explores ways to deepen our relationship with the Church, and our relationship with God. At its core, the Church is all about communion with Christ and one another. Yet many people may struggle with one or the other. They want to be spiritual – belonging to God, but don’t often see the value of being religious – belonging to the Church. Some people love the church, but they long to go deeper with God. The talks during the day will give you a greater appreciation for both, shining light on the richness and treasures of our faith. Discover or rediscover how faith gives meaning to everything in life.
