LENTEN RETREAT Led by Brother James Koester & Brother Jim Woodrum, SSJE
March 30 | 9 a.m. - Noon | Coke Room This day will have ample times of silence to allow us to come away, and rest awhile. Interspersed throughout our time together, will be a series of addresses focused on some of the characters in the Gospel of John and how they invite us to reflect on what Prologue might mean where it says to all who received him, who believed in his name, he gave power to become children of God, who were born, not of blood or of the will of the flesh or of the will of man, but of God.
