A Time to See

A Time to Choose

A Time to Act

The last few years offer us an opportunity to ask God an important question:  What is your dream for us? 


Join us on July 23rd for the Seventh Annual Ignatian Retreat with presenter, Becky Eldredge, as we dream with God of a better future.

Drawing on the gifts of Ignatian spirituality, Becky Eldredge will invite us to dream with God of a better future through engaging with tools that invite us to see, to choose, and to act with Christ.
