Prepare yourself for Lent together with the Discalced Carmelites!

This year’s retreat theme is “Prayer: Living our vocation as God’s children.”

Children of God: we are already God’s children through our baptism. But how can we fully realize our profound vocation to become sons and daughters of God? Mental prayer, which is personal silent prayer, is a privileged way for us to become and grow as daughters and sons of God in Christ. This Lenten retreat will help us to renew our spiritual life—in depth—in order to experience the grace of Easter with gratitude as God's children!
