On August 14 – 16, I had the pleasure of leading the first ever Pray, Hope and Don’t Worry retreat at the Malvern Retreat House in the Philadelphia suburbs. We had over 50 individuals who came from all over the country to spend 3 days moving away from anxiety and closer to Jesus. It was an amazing weekend and provided us with the opportunity to withdraw from the craziness of the world and spend time in the presence of Our Lord. As I have discovered in my own life, spending time with Jesus (through prayer, Scripture and the Sacraments) is the best way to stop worrying and experience peace.
In case you missed the retreat, all of my talks (a total of five) will soon be available on CD and MP3 download. In the very near future, I’ll be announcing how you can purchase them.
Want some even better news? Because this retreat was such a success, I have been invited by Malvern to lead it again in the Summer of 2016! I’ll announce the date once it’s finalized, so stay tuned for more information!
