Our essential questions of the retreat are:

What does it mean to be holy? And what does holiness have to do with climate change?

We will be guided by the words of Pope Francis. In his letter, Gaudete et Exsultate (Rejoice and Be Glad) he encourages us to open our eyes, ears and hearts, to be unsettled by the words of the Gospel and expand our often-limited horizons.

Join us for a weekend of reflection

How will we counter consumerism?

We are invited to be the agents of change and challenge the culture of consumerism. It is our job to respond to the Pope’s profound invitation to care for our common home and find our own path to holiness. Through this retreat we can find out how we can be part of the movement that will slow climate change.
