 Upcoming Retreat 

Ignatian, Charismatic, Contemplative:
Three Spiritualities that Skyrocket our Faith

Fr. John Auther, S.J.
April 3-6, 2025
Our Lady of Hope Retreat Center
3167 Old Highway 51 S.
Osyka, MS 39657              

At the end of the 20th century, three spiritualities revolutionized the lives of many Christians.  But these rarely were allowed to work together in the life of any given person. This retreat attempts to correct that and skyrocket us toward Heaven. The retreat format will include presentations, prayer and quiet time alone, Mass, and opportunities for confession and spiritual direction.
