While he was still speaking, there came from the ruler’s house some who said, “Your daughter is dead. Why trouble the Teacher any further?” But ignoring what they said, Jesus said to the ruler of the synagogue, “Do not fear, only believe.” And he allowed no one to follow him except Peter and James and John the brother of James. When they came to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, he saw a tumult, and people weeping and wailing loudly. And when he had entered, he said to them, “Why do you make a tumult and weep? The child is not dead but sleeping.” And they laughed at him. But he put them all outside, and took the child’s father and mother and those who were with him, and went in where the child was. Taking her by the hand he said to her, “Tal′itha cu′mi”; which means, “Little girl, I say to you, arise.” And immediately the girl got up and walked; for she was twelve years old. And immediately they were overcome with amazement. (Mark 5:41)
Join us for our annual silent retreat as we prepare for Holy Week.
This year: Talitha Koum (rise)
This is a one-day silent retreat for young adults which includes lunch and dinner as well as opportunities for spiritual direction and confession ending with Palm Sunday vigil mass.
This retreat is about making space for Christ and we know that looks different for everyone. There will be some presentations/reflections to help guide your prayer for the day, but we also encourage you to take what you need: maybe that's a walk, or a nap or some journaling time. There is limited structure so the unlimited God can do His thing in each heart.
