This unique retreat experience takes participants on a journey through cinema to reflect together on our common human experience and the ability to "speak from the heart, or to speak the truth in charity" as Pope Francis reflects in his 2023 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 by listening with the ear of the heart.
There are two Film Retreat options this year, virtual and in-person. The one in-person is a weekend retreat and the virtual is a week-long retreat. Films are subject to change.
