Half Day Retreat in Hillsboro


On Saturday, February 18, The Retreat House at Hillsboro will be hosting a half-day retreat from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. entitled “Recovering Spirit: The Path to Forgiveness,” led by Reverend Paul Gennett, Jr., pastor of St. Mark’s in Dover, Delaware.

This contemplative session will focus on spirituality using the 12 Steps of AA and other teachings as a guide for exploration and discussion on the subject of forgiveness. The retreat is open to anyone who wishes to expand their spiritual life. Being in a recovery program is not required. Gennett explained, “Many of us struggle with letting go of things that are in the way of our spiritual growth. During this retreat we’ll consider what life might be like without them.”
