Following Jesus:

to know You more intimately, love You more deeply, and follow You more closely

We are very excited & blessed to welcome back Fr. Bob Dufford, SJ, our presenter from last year's Annual Ignatian Retreat. This April, Fr. Dufford will offer a different virtual retreat, Following Jesus, as he invites us into an intimate encounter with Jesus, accompanying him through his life and ministry. We hope you will join us for this wonderful opportunity to deepen your relationship with God and refresh your spirit!
