8-Day Silent, Guided Directed Retreat.  Today's Good News: The Joy of the Gospel.  6:30 pm Sunday, August 2 to 1:30 pm Sunday, August 9.  Directors: Fr. David Robinson, SJ; Br. Charlie Jackson, SJ; Sr. Barbra Ostheimer, SND; Sr. Jeanne Fallon, CSJ; Sr. Teresa Groth, DMJ; Jack Gonsalvez, LIS Associate; Liliana Hsueh-Gutierrez, LIS Associate; TBD.  We are inundated with news stories of violence, death and destruction, personal tragedies, seemingly insurmountable situations occurring around the globe in the midst of our own life struggles and challenges. Increasing pressures and the pace of life add to the anxieties and fears that feel so pervasive. It seems as though we have forgotten that there is another story, another way of being and believing. We have forgotten that there is "Good News". We have forgotten the joy of the Gospel. Come to "recover the original freshness of the Gospel" (Pope Francis, Evangelii Guadium") on our annual 8-Day Guided Directed Retreat, a silent retreat based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius. It provides time for spiritual reflection, solitude and prayer, inviting retreatants to be attentive to the inner movements of the Holy Spirit. Prayer focuses on scripture and personal life experience. The schedule includes a Scripture-based conference each morning, individual direction (a daily meeting with a retreat director), celebration of daily Eucharist, optional evening prayer activities and a Reconciliation service. Cost: per person/shared $820; single room $905.
To register for these event contact Tammy at (310) 377-4867 ext 252.

You will also experience her simple user-friendly pattern of love and forgiveness. The retreat will be an interactive, healing time of sharing and prayer.  Bring a pen and paper, and an open heart. Wear comfortable clothes. Lunch included. Cost: $50 ($45 if paid in full by August 21)
