Knowing JesusAn online retreat for any time of year

by the Ignatian Spirituality Centre Glasgow

Christian tradition believes that the person of Jesus Christ reveals God to us. If we are to follow Christ and imitate him, we need to know him through his words and actions as shown in the Gospels. Walk with us and really come to understand and love Jesus. We will ponder Gospel stories, reflect on their meaning and see how startlingly relevant Jesus is to living a truly human life in the 21st Century.

Local and International Outreach: We continue to support our local and international charities. The Missionaries of Charity in Munich, although we no longer support with foodstuffs and sundries, we do provide them with financial support when the need arises. The Refugee Center in Höhenkirchen-Siegertsbrunn outside of Munich still needs our continued support. The Small Home in Kenya is one of our International Outreach Projects that requires financial support on a recurring basis. If you would like to make a designated donation to any one of these charities, please drop your donation in an envelope that identifies the charity and place it in the donation baskets placed at the rear of the church.
