About the Event

In Magdala, The Encounter Chapel, is dedicated to Jesus’ encounter with all of us, as illustrated by the large painting, titled “Encounter”, in the back of the chapel. The painting gives us a snapshot of the encounter of the hemorrhaging woman who tries to touch Jesus for healing (Matthew 9: 20-22)

During this retreat like the hemorrhaging woman, we will try to touch Jesus. Fr. Louis de Vaugelas, LC will provide us with some spiritual insights about that passage to inspire us. He will model how to pray and prayerfully journal. In our turn grounded in the word of God, we will exercise the 5 ways to pray and 5 ways to journal.

Opportunities will be given to exercise in the ways to pray: The Examination of Consciousness, The Lectio Divina, The Gospel Contemplation, The Practice of the Daily Examen, The Prayer of Quiet.

Bring a packed lunch and drink.  If you would like to walk in the woods between meditations, you may bring some hiking boots.

There is no fee to attend. Donations are apprecated and can be made on-line at
