Women Ignatian Silent Retreat - facilitated by Fr. Jean Francky Guerier, SJ. - The cross as an act of God’s grace - in Christ, God brought hope, salvation and life to the world.

Therefore, brothers and sisters, we are not children of the slave woman, but of the free woman.” (Gal. 4:31). In the Summa Theologiae, St. Thomas Aquinas provides important insights to understand the logic of the new law of Christ which restores the fallen condition of the human person. The new law contains teaching that disposes the sinful person to the grace of the Holy Spirit. It brings people into the mystery of the cross of Christ and frees them from the bondage of the flesh and the yoke of wealth, thereby guiding their actions and helping them to live according to the law of love. "The message of the cross is complete absurdity to those who are headed for ruin, but to us who are experiencing salvation, it is the power of God.” (1 Corinthians 1:18- 19). During three days of retreat, we will focus on some scripture passages to contemplate the cross of Christ as the ultimate act of hope, salvation and life for those who are overwhelmed by many issues today such as depression, fear, violence, etc.

This silent weekend retreat begins on Friday evening and runs to Sunday with lunch. The suggested offering is $250 per person which includes two night's accommodation with meals, spiritual direction and retreat program.
