Young professionals are students and working adults, generally under the age of 40, who are living in the midst of the world, and who seek to know God in a deeper way, to experience the love and healing of Christ, and receive help discerning God’s path for their lives. In the words of Pope Francis, “Christ is alive and he wants you to be alive!”. Young people are already “leaven” in society and uniquely placed to be agents of God’s mercy and the building of his kingdom. This retreat, at the threshold of the month of June, will bring our retreatants to a “heart to heart” encounter with the Sacred Heart, the living symbol of the God who has loved us relentlessly from the beginning.


June 4 (evening) to June 6 (noon), 2021.
