Encounter With Jesus
An Encounter With Jesus 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. 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 (EWJ) offers the opportunity to discover Him through prayer of the heart, and through His Real Presence in the Eucharist. But this encounter requires an act of supernatural faith.
THIS RETREAT IS
This is not for us a business transaction. It is a Christian act of service. And of faith that He will provide. No one will be excluded for lack of money. Thus, our policy is the following:
A NON-REFUNDABLE REGISTRATION FEE OF $40 IS REQUIRED WITH REGISTRATION, TO KNOW WHO IS REALLY COMMITTED.
Beyond that, we charge no fee for the Encounter. Once you have experienced the Encounter, we invite you to give a donation as you freely choose to support MDM.
Our Mission relies entirely on donations. There are a lot of expenses in offering this Retreat and sustaining this Mission with its many functions. God bless you for your help.
MAY 21 – 24
Encounter With Jesus – Women
The Mission is a monastery; it is consecrated ground; it is our Community’s home. We welcome anyone who wants to visit the Mission. We simply ask that they respect our request for clothing that is appropriate for a place consecrated to Our Lord and His Blessed Mother, and in coming to Mass that they dress in a manner that shows reverence for the occasion. Father wears his vestments, the altar servers put on their albs, and the congregation wears clothes that are appropriate for attending Mass.
BELOW THE KNEE
NO TANK TOPS
NO LOW-CUT NECKLINES
NO MID-THIGH HEMLINES
Also, be alerted that the Mission terrain is fairly rough and rocky, with few paved walk ways. Good walking shoes are helpful; high heels are not. We appreciate your help in making others aware of our request for appropriate dress while attending Mass at the Mission.
We think Our Lord appreciates it too.
