Virtual Discernment Retreat

Let us Dream a New World
 February 17 – 19, 2023


In the midst of great changes and challenges in our lives, and in the world, are you unsure of your next steps?

How do we put our dreams into reality to weave a web of love, to move from an individual to a collective future?  How do we continue to adjust to this pandemic embracing perplexity, touching the wounds of others, and walking into a better tomorrow?

Join us to intentionally pause, reflect, pray, and discern what comes next FOR YOU! (Past discerners have been considering: career change, grad school, mission work, geographic moves, or many other potential next steps).
