Along the Way: An Online Lenten Retreat

Along the Way: An Online Lenten Retreat

Tuesday, March 8th - Friday, March 11th | 1:00 - 2:15 p.m. EST on Zoom

  

Join the Church in the 21st Century Center at Boston College for Along the Way: An Online Lenten Retreat, March 8-11, 2022 from 1:00-2:15pm (EST) each day. Catholic writer, speaker, and author Laura Kelly Fanucci will be directing our first virtual retreat journey, as we meet the men and women who served Jesus in His darkest hours—including Mary Magdalene, Nicodemus, and Joseph of Arimathea. 

Through their faith and courage, we will learn what it means to bring our whole selves to serve God – in ordinary and extraordinary ways. This experience will change how you hear the Gospel stories forever, as you explore the devotion of these ordinary, yet powerfully spiritual, role models, who are traditionally known as the “Myrrhbearers” for the vessels of myrrh mixed with oil they brought to honor Jesus’ body. 

Participants will receive a free e-book for Lent, with weekly reflections, prayers, and Scripture to continue praying through the whole Lenten season. All Zoom sessions will be recorded and available during Lent in case participants are unable to attend. Each session will include Scripture, Reflection, and Prayer, followed by small group discussions. Registration is required, but there is no cost for the retreat.
