Finding God in This Confusing World – August 11-13, 2017

It all seems so hard to discover God in these changing times.  Is God truly present to us or has God just left it all up to us?  Where do we go from here?  What difference can one person make?  Good questions are not answered easily nor quickly.  This retreat is meant for those willing to ask the difficult questions of life and to go deeper into the mystery of this reality.

Facilitator:  Fr. Jim Clarke
