I have set the Lord continually before me . . . Therefore, my heart is glad. Psalm 16:8-9

In this silent retreat on Encountering the Presence of God in our Daily Life, we seek to address and prepare you on how to experience the joy of hearing God through the noise, complexities, stress and monotony of everyday life.
