LENTEN RETREAT AT ST. JUDE’S RANCH, BOULDER CITY, SAT., March 10, 9:00am-5:00 pm
LAMENT—FROM PAIN TO PRAISE
Is there a place in a healthy spiritual life for honest complaint to God in the midst of the world’s sorrows and our own difficulties?  The Psalmists affirm that there is, and that God desires the relationship that develops as we wrestle with disorienting events. Come spend some time being present to God and to yourself, as we explore lament through Psalms, thoughtful writings, and contemplative exercises.  We will leave with a vision of hope and the awareness of God’s work in our lives.
Rides are available.  The cost is $25 and includes a light breakfast, a full lunch, and retreat materials.  Please sign up on the patio and indicate if you need a ride.  If you need financial assistance, please speak to Fr. Hines.
