Christ the King Retreat House
“Hanging onto Hope” How do we hang onto our Christian hope amid the gloom and doom that sometimes pervades the daily news—and our personal lives? This retreat explores the virtue of hope and its relation to faith, love, wonder, and courage. Using scripture, short videos, stories, music, and humor, Sister Melannie will suggest ways we can nourish hope in our everyday life and draw closer to God, the ultimate source of all hope. Offering: $250 Commuters: $175 ($50 Non-refundable deposit required.)
