REVIVE HOPE AND HEALING Retreat: “GOD, ARE YOU STILL THERE? Dealing with doubt, dryness and desert times” at Holy Family Church, 127 Chapel Dr., Syracuse; 9-11:30 a.m. We all experience seasons in our lives when Jesus seems far away. They can last for days, months, or even years. During Lent, we are reminded that our Lord experienced a similar time of trial and that it was both a period of preparation and purpose. But what about us? How can we endure? What are the lessons of Lent that can help us get out of the desert and into the glory that is yet to come? The morning retreat includes a talk by author and speaker Anne Costa; opportunities for networking with light breakfast and Catholic vendor tables including Birthright, CNY Marian Center, the Catholic Shop and more! The REVIVE Hope and Healing Unbound Team will be available for prayer. Attendees are invited to attend Mass prior to the retreat in the church. Free. For more information, contact Anne Costa at (315) 628-1713.
