Amor Meus Spirituality Center, located at Incarnate Word Convent, 1101 N. E. Water Street, Victoria, Texas, is offering a retreat on Saturday, February 5, 2022, entitled: “Where Shall We Go—Finding True Love in the Cross and the Eucharist”.  It is facilitated by Father Kirby Hlavaty, M.Div.

Two of Jesus’ most difficult command- ments in the Gospels are "take up your cross" and "eat my flesh." If we are to truly experience, and live out, the love of God, we must willingly embrace the sacrifice of the Cross and willingly be in communion with one another.  Our daily struggles can be deep invitations to come to know God's true love.  

This retreat is a Guided Retreat, which includes two presentations and time for reflection and personal prayer after each presentation.  Sign-in is at 9:30 AM with the Introduction to the retreat at 10:00 AM.  The retreat ends at 3:00 PM.

Participants are asked to bring their lunch.  Masks and social distancing is required.  Parking is in front of the convent. There is no fee.  However, a free-will offering is accepted. To register email: amormeuscenter@gmail.com or call: 361-485-0866 or 361-575-7111.
