14 September 2019, Saturday: “The Joyful Pilgrim”.  Saint Paul of the Cross Monastery Retreat Center, Pittsburgh, PA.  Retreat Weekend Workshop. JOY! The three-letter word that brings a smile to the lips and a skip to our steps can be fleeting, yet we know that God wants this for us.  Lent and Advent provide countless opportunities to draw near to Christ and find joy – but where can it be found after the Easter and Christmas seasons?  Come and see what it means to be a Joyful Pilgrim and learn how to discover and keep joy in your heart year-round.

9 October 2019, Wednesday: “Abide in His Love”  7 – 8:30 PMSaint Paul of the Cross Monastery Retreat Center, Pittsburgh, PA.  Evening Talk.  Love. That elusive, romantic, desirable state of being that seems to promise an extraordinary level of hope and happiness. We long to give it and to receive it, yet find it fleeting, challenging, unpredictable, and at times painful. Yet somehow, LOVE is the key to our salvation. There’s a simple and profound message in the Gospel of John that illuminates the secret of successful holiness and it’s tied up in the simple request to abide in the love of Christ. How is such a thing accomplished? The answer might be simpler than you think and a delightful challenge to undertake that will place you on the fast-track to discipleship from which you’ll never want to turn back. This evening workshop will help us to abide in the love of Christ.
