Bon Secours Young Adult Ministry

“God’s Liberation”

Friday, August 3rd, 2018
Bon Secours Young Adults is hosting one of our twice-yearly Bon Secours Charism Formation Weekends at Bon Secours Townley IV Farm starting today and going through Sunday, August 5, 2018. We are filled with gratitude that young adults from across Virginia, Washington, DC, and Maryland will be joining us for a weekend of prayer and deepening of their connection to the Sisters of Bon Secours and the Charism of Bon Secours “to bring God’s compassion, healing, and liberation to people in need.”
We hope that you would be open to keeping all of us on retreat this weekend in your prayers.
This weekend we will be exploring what the Bon Secours Charism means by the words, “God’s Liberation.” We hope that each participant will walk away from the weekend with a deeper sense of God’s liberation in their own lives, and a greater understanding of how they can bring God’s liberation to a world in great need of just that. Here is a prayer that you can use, if it helps:
Peace Within
May today there be peace within.
May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.
May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you
May you be confident knowing you are a child of God.
Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.
It is there for each and every one of us.
– St. Therèse of Lisieux and St. Theresa of Avila
We are called by God and sent by the Church to reproduce in ourselves:
Christ healing... Christ consoling... Christ always aware of the needs of others.
