Lenten Retreat in Daily Life

February 28 - April 12, 2022

The Lenten Retreat in Daily Life is a perfect opportunity to start, reboot, or dial in your prayer and relationship with God, all while talking with a spiritual guide and looking ahead to Easter. The retreat is simple, but the effects are lasting.

Retreatants come together for an opening prayer service and commit to at least 15 minutes of daily prayer. Each retreatant is matched with a Spiritual Companion or Director who you’ll meet with weekly to talk about how both your prayer and your life are going. At the end of the retreat, everyone regathers to reflect on how the retreat has produced fruit in their lives.

That’s it. But it is amazing what can happen through regular daily commitment to spiritual growth. Retreatants report everything from a steady deepening of faith to a reclaiming of silence in their lives to truly transformative experiences.

The Lenten Retreat in Daily Life is offered in two formats: online and in-person. You can choose whichever format better matches your circumstances.

Come on the Lenten Retreat in Daily Life and see what God has planned for you.
