About The Event
When was the last time you gave yourself permission to rest?
Could you spend a simple day just resting in the Lord?
Join ITE for its annual fall retreat: Ephphatha.
Rooted in Mark 7:34, this retreat provides you the time you need to "be opened" to what the Lord wants for you now. There will be two simple reflections and spiritual direction offered by priests as well as time in community and solitude. The open schedule of the retreat will allow you time to do what you need most-- whether that is to play lawn games and board games with friends old and new, delve deeper in breakout discussion groups, or slip away to journal and pray with the Blessed Sacrament.
This retreat is for YOU and there will be mulitiple opportunities to make it meaningful and purposeful to your uniquely knitted soul.
The ticket price includes a light breakfast offering, lunch and dinner, as well as snacks throughout the day. (We hate when people are hungry. ) There will also be a few gifts to welcome you to a day's rest.
The retreat will officially close with Mass on Sunday, October 10th at 11 a.m. After Mass, ITE will host a potluck lunch in the pavillon. ITE will provide the main dish and drinks. Please bring something to share and join us for a time of fellowship. See you there!
