Post Retreat Examen

by Carmelite Sisters at Sacred Heart Retreat House

We are so grateful to God for allowing us the ability to provide Virtual Retreats to everyone, regardless of time and place. All the work behind the scenes of recording, uploading, editing, singing, etc. makes it all worth it when someone who took the retreat says…“The Lord has revealed even more how much He really does love me.” To spread God’s love to others and to make Him loved in return gives us a taste of heaven! Watch and listen for news of the next virtual retreat!
