LMSNZ Retreat 13-15 May 2022

To live a holy Catholic life everyone needs a period of peace to engage in quiet prayer and reflection: whether trying to discern God’s calling, seeking to overcome a dominant fault or being uncertain about an important decision, or wanting time to take a deep breath away from the hustle and bustle of daily life and contemplate the beautiful mysteries of our Faith, a retreat is the ideal solution and can be a life-changing experience.
