“Walking in Light and Walking in Darkness”
Location: St. John Chrysostom Catholic Church, 295 Albert Church St. Arnprior
Cost: $35 (in person or virtual)
The Human Journey is a pilgrimage in light and in darkness.
When the containers of faith don’t hold up anymore, we are not losing our faith we are losing an
icon. Doubt and darkness do not necessarily mean that we are struggling with faith. They can
just as easily mean that we are struggling inside our imagination and that God is purifying us.
Retreat Weekend: Saturday September 16, 9:00 a.m. – Sunday September 17, 1:00 p.m.
“Spirituality and the Seasons of our Lives.”
Location: Galilee Centre
Cost (includes public lecture): $445 Single, $300 Double, $295 Commuter, $190 Virtual
There are deeper levels of maturity, deeper levels of discipleship, and ever-deeper things to
which we are called by Jesus. The challenges Jesus lays out in scripture speak to us in different
ways at different times in our lives. The classical mystics distinguished three clear struggles
within human maturity and within spiritual growth: i) the struggle to get our lives together; ii)
the struggle to give our lives away; and iii) the struggle to give our deaths away. This retreat
will attempt to lay out an overview of both ideal human growth and of spirituality.
