Made for Greater – a three to five day retreat experience

We have a deep desire to know that we are irreplaceable, loved, and that God has a plan for our lives. When Archbishop Jose Gomez released his Pastoral Letter, For Greater Things You Were Born, he identified a need in our society for healing, especially in our identity in Christ, and our mission as Christians. To answer this call, the Carmelite Sisters have formulated a retreat experience that will nurture the encounter with the Living God.

We will journey with you to discover the answer to these foundational questions: Who is God? Who am I? Why did God create me? Who is this God that desires relationship with me? How can I live in the freedom of my identity in Christ? What is God’s unique plan for my life? These are some big questions, but this retreat will be tailor made to flex with you wherever you might be in your journey. And the Carmelite Sisters are committed to walk with you before, during, and after the retreat. With a 3-, 4-, or 5- day option, you can choose to attend various activities depending on your spiritual needs. Find out more information and register online here: Made For Greater – May.
