Second Awesome Spiritual Retreat


"The life of the body is the soul; the life of the soul is God." – St. Anthony.

2nd Spiritual Retreat

04/06/2013
Summary and Photos By: Retreat Attendees

There can be nothing more rewarding than to surrender ourselves to the Will of our Heavenly Father, in solitude, intensively seeking the things that are above, and be set apart to prayer and meditation. So to find ourselves in a place and time unparallel to any other. As such was indeed the time we spent during our retreat at St. Anthony Mission.

As we shared our passion for our Lord during the journey, and walked gazing at the splendor of the Creation God Willed to exist out of nothingness, as if every tree and every bloom were drawn into existence to welcome the believing hearts to an encounter with His infinite love. Indeed, we are created out of His Love, and so lovingly, for a life of Love.

My heartfelt gratitude goes to the Daughters of Charity Ministry, for coordinating and hosting this beautiful journey, and my upmost sincere appreciation to our Pastor, Fr. Peter Georgis, whose presence was a blessing and an aspiration in itself. God Bless each and every one of you, and may His Grace renew your spirit, so to be a true instrument of His Love, and a living witness to The Resurrection. IGiT, may

I truly enjoyed our trip to St. Anthony’s Retreat Center! My mom has been talking about it for the last two days! The staff at St. Anthony's was very helpful throughout the day! Thank you and God Bless you all!! Maria Davoudpour

This retreat was a way to open the eyes of my heart and soul so I could see through the eyes of Jesus our Lord. And made me realize that our pains, worries, problems, etc. are just a little taste of what our Lord Jesus Christ suffered for us. He Is My King! So if you have a chance to attend next time, you would love it too. Atoor Peera

This was my second trip to this retreat center and although it was a short trip, it was well worth it. Next trip would hopefully be an overnight trip. Nancy Boulos
