Benefits of Guided Retreat

A guided retreat helps the participant deepen his or her faith journey. Life in Christ is more than life in Church. It is a life that transcends church but uplifts the principles of the Gospels. Guided retreat at the House Of Blessings will help you go beyond the confines of one group or another, into a place of freedom and strength in the journey that you are on.
