An Encounter With Jesus (EWJ) is a silent retreat that offers people the opportunity of a living encounter with Our Lord Jesus present in the Eucharist. It introduces the retreatants to silent prayer and Eucharistic Adoration in a way that is adapted to today’s situation. The EWJ retreats were developed and offered by the Mission of Divine Mercy at the Mission.
Many people today, youth and adults, experience profound confusion, difficulties, and sufferings. They, we, need Jesus. Only Jesus can respond to our deepest wounds. Above all, we need not just ideas or feelings, but personal contact with Jesus Himself. He is the true “Bread of Life” for the spiritual hunger of today.
The Encounter with Jesus offers the opportunity to discover Him through prayer of the heart, and through His Real Presence in the Eucharist.
