Lent: Encounters with Divine Mystery

The Gospels are full of heart-encounter stories.  What happens when people meet Jesus face to face?  They feel his power—and they feel their inner selves rising to meet him.  Some encounters were challenging, many beautifully in sync.  Encounter with the Holy evokes and strengthens our own truth and spirit.

During this prayerful time, we will reflect on some of the Scripture narratives noticing the special connection in each of these encounters.  What do we experience when we meet Divine Mystery in Jesus and in others?  It will be unique for each of us, rising from our unique and true selves.

Wednesday,  March 13, 2019; 9:15-11:15 and repeated 6:30-8:30pm
Freewill offering accepted

Extend your day: If you are planning on attending the morning session, you are welcome to stay as long as you like after the retreat and have a personal day of reflection.  You can have noon dinner with the Racine Dominicans (cost of $12) or bring your own.  We are offering massage after the retreat finishes and during the afternoon ($60/hr or $35/half hr payable to the therapist).  You can walk the indoor labyrinth, walk outdoors if the weather is good, express yourself in the Creativity Room, pray in the chapel or read in the library.  If you plan to eat dinner here or would like massage or reiki, please let us know at least ten days in advance.

Alternatively, if you are planning on attending the evening session, feel free to come earlier, and join the Sisters for supper (cost of $10) or bring your own.  Other than the meals and massage, there is no charge to extend your retreat day but a donation would be appreciated.
