Celebrating Life: A Retreat with Fr. Carl Arico

October 22, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Dealing with what needs to be forgiven and healed is essential but we must not forget the need to make time to celebrate all that is there. Let us then look at four key elements in our celebration of life. To pray and to trust, to love and to mend, to be available and to let go, to die to new life. Add to this Thomas Keating‘s profound insight “to know the other, to become the other, there is no other.”

Join us on Saturday, October 22, for a fall retreat on the above topic. Our speaker will be Fr. Carl Arico, one of the founding members of Contemplative Outreach Ltd, an international organization with over ninety contemplative chapters in thirty nine countries. Fr. Arico is honored to have known Fr. Thomas Keating since 1969 and was present for the first intensive Centering Prayer retreat that Fr. Keating offered in 1983. Carl is a Master Retreat Leader having traveled extensively throughout the United States and internationally presenting workshops and leading retreats. He is the author of A Taste Of Silence, a book on the fundamentals of Centering Prayer.

EVENT DETAILS: This is a hybrid event. Our speaker will Zoom in to join us; participants can choose to attend by Zoom, or in person for a contemplative gathering of friends. We will meet at St. John’s Episcopal Church, in Killeen Hall.
