Seeking the Hidden Grace:
A Corona Retreat

with Cheryl Rose, HM

This retreat will be conducted via Zoom.
The Zoom link will be sent to all those registered on July 23, 2020

Somewhere between endurance and despair, denial and avoidance, there is a place of deep learning being offered us in the current global pandemic. In the face of the Coronavirus, we see around us a range of reactions—from anger and denial to fear and hopelessness. Before us is a mighty opportunity for working with an event that has befallen the whole planet. Together we can enter this classroom of learning and seek the deep graces being offered all of us.

In this virtual, online retreat there will be four 90-minute sessions, two on Friday and two on Saturday. Each session will begin with a short prayer, followed by some input, and then time for personal reflection with questions or an exercise, and then returning for sharing in small or large groups.

Cheryl Rose, HM has always been drawn to the mystery of the human encounter with God and engaged in ministry in the area of spirituality and personal growth,  even as a high school teacher of chemistry and physics. She has taught courses on prayer and the spiritual journey, directed retreats for youth, school staffs, non-profits, and parishes. She has been doing spiritual direction and retreat work for many years. As a trained spiritual director and certified Enneagram teacher, Sr. Cheryl offers a variety of workshops for groups in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and elsewhere.
