Taking part in one of these virtual retreats can bring deep prayer and profound peace to help you grow in faith this Lent.
The 40 days of Lenten fasting are meant to imitate the 40 days Christ spent fasting and praying in the desert. In the same way, Lent is meant to be a special season of prayer for us all.
That means Lent is the perfect time for a retreat from the world to spend time with God, like Jesus did. But it’s not always easy to get away, especially if you have young children, elderly parents, or others for whom you are a caregiver.
Fortunately, there are some great virtual options to bring a retreat to you! These 5 retreats are designed especially to be done online.
We hope that taking part in one of these online retreats will bring you deep prayer and profound peace to help you grow in faith this Lent!
