The Path of Life - "I am the Way"

  • -
Fr Kevin Hayden OSB

Some people seem to find a way of living, a way of walking through life, a path to follow, that brings them alive, that makes their lives more and more vibrant.

What is that path, what are the common characteristics that show themselves again and again in the many very different people who have discovered it, and how do I discover and follow it for myself in the way that is right for me?

These sessions will explore the amazing claim made by Jesus that he is “The Way, the Truth, the Life.” (John 14:6) How can we discover for ourselves that he really speaks the truth: “I am the Way for you to walk, the path that leads to life: I am the truth that lies at the heart of life, the truth that will set you free: I am the life that in your heart of hearts you long for and were made for.”

The Path of Life retreats are for anyone between the ages of 18 and 35 who want to explore their faith and the direction their life is taking.

As places are limited we ask that you make a £25.00 non-refundable deposit.

Weekend 2: Friday 31 July - Sunday 2 August
