Virtual Retreat


Apr 09 - 11 2021



April 9 – 11, 2021

One heartbeat. That’s exactly how long it takes for God to forgive us.

As prodigal sons and daughters, we must not only receive that mercy but also give that mercy. How do we do that? Father Ed Broom teaches us exactly how to step into the Father’s open arms and practice this mercy towards others.

Enter into a Divine Mercy weekend with Father Ed Broom’s conferences (with Ignatian contemplation!), uplifting prayers and music by the Carmelite Sisters, and Zoom sharing time. Also during this retreat, we’re proud to announce the launch of “Carmel Talk” a new LIVE session on casual sharing with the Carmelite Sisters. Sister Teresa Christine, O.C.D. will share about her personal conversion to the Catholic faith and how God’s Divine Mercy led her to Carmel, includes Q&A time.

Access to all the retreat content will be available to you until May 9, 2021.

Together, let us know mercy, live mercy, and spread mercy. Register today!
