As Christians, we are called to be persons of hope. But how do we do this amid the gloom and doom that sometimes pervades the daily news—and our personal lives? This retreat explores the nature of hope and its relation to faith and love. It also suggests some practical ways we can nourish hope and courage in our daily lives. The retreat will use scripture, music, short videos, stories, sharing, and humor to lead us deeper into the Mystery of God, the ultimate source of all hope.
