Why is it so hard to forgive and show mercy (even though we want both for ourselves)?
Date: Friday May 20, 8 PM-Sunday, May 22, 1 PM
Retreat Director: Pat Fosarelli M.D., D.Min.
Cost: Suggested donation is $100 per adult staying the rooms and $50 for campers and Saturday-only attendees. Kids are free.
Setting: Lovely, green Nawakwa Retreat Center near Gettysburg, PA, with hiking trails, playgrounds and a labyrinth.
During the retreat, we will discuss forgiveness and mercy, topics close to the heart of Pope Francis. We will see how withholding forgiveness and failing to show mercy have deleterious effects in the body, mind, and spirit. During our time together, we will look at the areas in our lives – personal, professional, and church-related – that are in need of repair, reconciliation, and renewal, and how to go about that.
We will have age-appropriate programs for kids so both parents and children so that all can come away feeling renewed.
