Silent Weekend Retreats

 

Weekend Retreats provide an opportunity to get away from the often hectic pace of everyday living. They afford a chance to relax and give undivided attention to the interests and concerns of one’s spiritual life. Each Quiet Weekend Retreat includes group conferences, time for personal reflection and prayer, and mass, in an atmosphere of silence. The retreats are open to anyone, regardless of faith or parish affiliation. Retreats designated “Men and Women” are open to both married couples and individuals.

 

Check-in is 6:30-7:30 p.m. on Friday.  The first session begins at 8:00 p.m. on Friday, and the retreat ends by 3:00 p.m. on Sunday.

Xin Cho Chúng Nên Một – Tĩnh tâm Hôn nhân Gia đình

 

Fr. Hanh Pham, S.J.

 

“Nên Một” là cốt lõi của đời sống hôn nhân.  Khi vợ chồng nên một là lúc họ ở gần Thiên Chúa nhất và cộng tác với Thiên Chúa một cách đúng nhất.  Chỉ khi nên một, hôn nhân mới thực sự hạnh phúc, sinh nhiều hoa trái và bền vững.  Đây là khóa tĩnh tâm dành đặc biệt cho những người đang hoặc sẽ bước vào đời sống hôn nhân gia đình.  Một cơ hội đặc biệt để vợ chồng được nghỉ ngơi bên nhau và trong Chúa, cùng nhau học hỏi, định hướng và hâm nóng lại đời sống hôn nhân của mình.
