Lenten Retreat


From the parable of the Prodigal Son, we learn four important life lessons that lead to a deeper understanding and experience of God’s extravagant love for us — Stop. Turnaround. Be reconciled. Change.
The day will begin with mass in the Aquinas Chapel, with preaching on the story of the Prodigal Son by Fr. Jay Harrington, OP, followed by a series of presentations by spiritual director Steve Givens, an Aquinas alumnus and trustee. Each presentation will include time for quiet reflection and small group sharing.
