leader retreat

In our 21st year, we explore together the theme of Presence.

How did Jesus incarnate core things of the heart and spirit through loving presence, healing touch and enfleshed blessing?

What postures of the heart help us consent to Jesus’ healing touch? And as those who serve, what postures help us impart it to others? We’ll ponder two Gospel encounters at our winter retreat in which Jesus calls forward wholeness in us, and in those we serve, through loving, empowered Presence.

the touch that heals

Join us for an in person retreat day at a NEW LOCATION – Mount Olivet Retreat Center, Farmington, MN.
