Come as You Are
Discovering our place

in a wounded world

“I see clearly that the thing the church needs most today is the ability to heal wounds and to warm the hearts of the faithful; [. . .] I see the church as a field hospital after battle. ---Pope Francis

Come as You Are is a weekend retreat open to everyone 18 and over who is searching for their
place in the “field hospital” of the Church. Whether you see yourself as patient, healer, or both, we
will come together as community to reflect and seek understanding on how the Divine
Physician—God—heals wounds; and, how He calls us to warm the hearts of our brothers and
sisters, and ultimately, ourselves.

Opportunities will be provided for centering prayer sessions, periods of silence, proclamation of
the Gospel followed by lectio divina, interactive exercises, and group discussion. Introductory
teaching on the method of centering prayer will be available for newcomers.

DATE: Friday, April 12 (Registration begins at 4pm.) to Sunday, April 14, 2019 (Depart after noon meal.)
LOCATION: IL Ritiro Retreat Center 7935 St. Francis Lane Dittmer, MO 63023 www.il-ritiro.org
