A retreat for gay priests, brothers, and deacons

Retreat Theme Description

Inspired by the Gospel of John, Jesus’ call to live in the truth (John 8:32) in order to have abundant life (John 10:10) will provide the focus for this retreat. Jesus invites us to pattern our ministry and our sexuality according to his embrace of truth. Embracing God’s truth, discovered in our deepest selves, both challenges and empowers us to live more authentically in every dimension of our lives.
