Come... Follow Me: A Spiritual Journey to Wholeness & Healing   

Discover the Transformative Power of Christ                                               

Heed the Call to a unique spiritual journey following the Way of Jesus, placing him at the center of your life and letting him lead you on a path to a new way of living, thinking, and being.

Come… Follow Me is a highly transformative spiritual journey that follows a 12 Step Spiritual Path based on Scripture and the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius. Designed to guide you in your search for hope, healing, and serenity, the steps provide a roadmap to discern God's will for your life and the support to live it out. It offers tools and resources to minimize your ego and to maximize your humility and willingness to serve God and others. Come...Follow Me will transform you and help you grow spiritually as you travel a path to peace and holiness.

Your Journey begins Saturday, September 10, 2022.

How is the program structured: Come...Follow Me is offered in a way that provides options for busy people. We offer monthly half-day retreats on the second Saturday of each month, September 10- May 13, from 8:00am-12noon in Cardinal Newman Hall, and provide weekly self-reflection homework that individuals can complete independently.   

*Each step will be introduced and prayerfully experienced in a half-day retreat format. Instruction - discussion & sharing – meditation.

In addition, we offer optional weekly sessions (recommended) for individuals who wish to journey more closely as a community to receive support, guidance, and help to integrate the lessons through discussion of the weekly self-reflection homework. These sessions are held on Thursday evening from 5:30 - 6:30pm in Cardinal Newman Hall, Room 103.
