Peace of Christ!
The Church gives us the Holy Season of Lent to enter more fully into the central mysteries of our Faith. This Holy Week we invite you to experience the celebration of the Paschal Triduum in a deeper and more meaningful way. The Office of Alumni Relations and the Gesu Liturgical Committee offer their annual Triduum Retreat for Alumni.
A retreat is essentially:
 - a time off from the busy daily grind of life so that we can make time for ourselves and for God and experience the grace of peaceful rest

 - an opportunity to remove ourselves from the clutter and noise of the world so that we can make space in our hearts for God and enter the silence and solitude where our deepest longings can be heard.
We seek to nurture the Ignatian Spirituality of discovering and responding to Christ's call and finding God in all things.  Our retreat hopes to bring us to a deeper awareness of God's presence in our lives and make us more attentive to His desire rather than our own.    "Man is created to praise, reverence and serve God our Lord, and by this means to save his soul... Our one desire and choice should be what is more conducive to the end for which we are created."  (Spiritual Exercises by St. Ignatius)
