This unique retreat experience takes participants on a journey through cinema to reflect together on our common human experience and the gift of encountering people as and where they are, as Pope Francis reflects in his 2021 World Communications Day message. With the practice of cinema divina, lectio divina with film, we enter into the reality of how we communicate with one another and God in view of respectful encounters.

There are two Film Retreats this year. The one in July is a week-long retreat (5 films) and the retreat in September is a weekend retreat (3 films).
