In today’s hectic and busy world, it is often difficult to find time to Jesus imageencounter Jesus or spend time deepening our relationship with Him. 

We invite you to a Kerygma retreat to deepen your faith, open your heart, and have a real and personal encounter with Jesus Christ.

Kerygma (ker-rig-ma) comes from the Greek for the proclamation of the mystery of the love of God, who invites us into a personal relationship with Himself in Christ. Kerygma is proclaimed with great spiritual power to the point of bringing about conversion and a strong decision of faith.
