A Spiritual Retreat on the Conversion of St. Mark invites you to contemplate the life of St. Mark and accompany him through the central moment in his life in which we witness the man who was once a runaway from Christ become an evangelist for the Catholic faith.
This retreat helps us to reflect on our vocation and personal call to holiness, regardless of our state in life. In his own pursuit of holiness, we see St. Mark overcome fear to become a daring, courageous disciple of Christ. Like St. Mark, when faced with difficulty in our own life, will we choose to flee bravely from temptation or will we flee cowardly from grace?
A Spiritual Retreat on the Conversion of St. Mark is ideal for anyone seeking to take 1 – 2 days from daily life to spend quiet time in prayer and to enter more deeply into the Gospel. It is an opportunity to examine our spiritual life, reflecting upon the moments in which we have abandoned God and rejoicing in the gift of His merciful love.
