Father Richard Gielow, CM

Everyone wants to tell you
what is the most important
thing to give you happiness.
It probably rests inside each
one of us. Retreat will focus
on how best to get that out.
Please bring a bible, journal and writings that speak of global spirituality.  Please come with a heart open to the possibility to falling in love again with creation and the Creator. Retreat will include input, prayer and sharing of insights.

The Parables and Wisdom Saying of Jesus  
The parables and wisdom sayings of Jesus are bridges to deep discipleship.  They bring us from where we are to where Jesus is, for they come from his imagination and reflections, in answer to our desire to share His understanding and His way of love.  On this retreat, let us hear Jesus' voice again and open our hearts to come ever closer to be like Him in our hearts.
