2022-2023 Retreat Season

Living the Lord’s Prayer Retreat Weekends

About
Sometimes prayer is a struggle. When the disciples of Jesus had struggles in their prayer life, they plainly asked Jesus, “Lord, teach us to pray” (Lk 11:1). And Jesus gave them simple, yet incredibly profound words to pray to God. Thus, the Lord’s Prayer becomes the model and pattern for all our prayers AND for our entire spiritual life. But how often do we mindfully utter the words of this prayer? How often do we truly ponder and explore the spiritual depths of this prayer?

Having discerned with the help of the Holy Spirit, the Capuchin Retreat Center offers “Living the Lord’s Prayer” as the theme for this year. The retreat conferences inspired by the Scriptural passages, Franciscan Capuchin Tradition, and the reflections of Pope Francis, offer a wonderful opportunity to reflect upon the words and spirituality of the Lord’s Prayer so that we dare not only to pray, but also truly dare to live within this prayer.

Please join us at Capuchin Retreat for our 2022-2023 Retreat Season as we learn to pray with Jesus, pray like Jesus, and rediscover the riches of being God’s beloved children.
