When the Israelites saw it, they said to one another

“What is it? For they did not know what it was.”

Jesus came near…but their eyes were kept from recognising him”

In the Sacred Stories of Lent and Easter we find a common theme of our human desire, struggle and search to recognise the presence and provision of Divine Love in the stories of our lives.

This Lenten Weekend Retreat ,in the beautiful surrounds of the FCJ House of Spirituality offers an opportunity to pause and ponder when, where and how God is with us now as we wonder and wander on the Lenten Desert Journey of 2023.

In a blend of input, silence, prayer and group support this retreat provides us with a sacred place and time to turn to The One who longs to nourish us, to help us, to “see again”…

MOSES said to them,” It is the bread The Lord has given you to eat”

JESUS “ took bread, blessed and broke it and gave it to them.

Then their eyes were opened and they recognised The Lord”…

(Exodus 16:15;Mark 10:51;Luke 24:16,30-31)
