MEN & WOMEN 5 – DAY RETREAT  –  The theme or motto of the Jubilee Year 2025 chosen by Pope Francis is: “Pilgrims of Hope”. He invites us to “fan the flame of hope that has been given to us and gain new strength and certainty by looking to the future with an open spirit, a trusting heart and a farsighted vision.” At the beginning of this new year, a wonderful way of doing this is to review the Petrine Ministry of Pope Francis and his most important teachings during this interactive retreat. Since March 13, 2013, his Petrine Ministry has greatly influenced the Church and impacted the world. His major teaching documents Evangelii Gaudium, Laudate Si, Amoris Letizia, Fratelli Tutti, Gaudete et Exsultate and Laudate Deum have touched each of us and reminded us of the centrality of the message and documents of the Second Vatican Council in the life of the Church. He has reinvigorated the Synod of Bishops and modeled for us the meaning of Synodality which must guide our way of being Church.

This five-day retreat, beginning on Monday afternoon and ending with lunch on Friday, will closely examine Pope Francis’ ministry and his major teaching documents over the past eleven years. Attentive to the results of the recent Synod on Synodality and using the method of ‘Conversations in the Spirit’ which guided the Synodal journey.

Fr. Thomas Rosica, CSB, will lead us each day with conferences, group reflections, Eucharistic Celebrations, and opportunities for individual Spiritual Direction. 

Facilitated by:  Fr. Thomas Rosica, CSB
