  • Photo from myspiritualroadtrip.com

    Holy Week is almost upon us, and while it is considered the time for Christians to reflect on the crucifixion, death and resurrection of Jesus, we are all encouraged to take some time out to rest not just our bodies, but our souls too. One of the ways we can do this is by attending a retreat or recollection.

    To help you determine where to find that much-needed “soul refreshment,” here is a list of retreat/recollection schedules and locations:
