Why a New Life Retreat?

This retreat will bring you into a new or deeper personal relationship with the Lord God Himself in the freedom, power, and refreshment of the Holy Spirit.

"The Lord is knowable. Just as we can know one another we likewise can know the Lord. He lives! He can reveal Himself to us at will, if we let Him." Fr. Bob Bedard

"I propose this to you, to make your faith alive: Have a personal encounter with the Resurrected Lord, an encounter of open eyes and palpitating heart." Pope John Paul II

Jesus said: "I have come that you may have life, and have it to the full." (Jn 10:10)
