Joe nassal
Rev. Joe Nassal, CPPS

Fri, Apr 5 2019 - Sun, Apr 7 2019

Preached Silent Retreat
Actual Cost: $350.00
Minimum Offering: $250.00
In this retreat, we will reflect on how God is born in time and place and how we call this “grace.” We will explore a spirituality of grace as it is present in the parameters of the times and places and people that comprise and compose our lives. These kairos moments, or moments of truth, shape and sustain our journey of faith. As Thomas Merton wrote, “the idea of kairos – the time of urgent and providential decision – is something characteristic of Christianity, a religion of decisions in time and in history.”

Fr. Joe Nassal, CPPS, is Provincial Director of the Kansas City Province of the Missionaries of the Precious Blood. Author of several books including The Conspiracy of Compassion, Rest Stops for the Soul, Premeditated Mercy, Moments of Truth and Stations of the Crib, he has been engaged in retreat, renewal and reconciliation ministry since 1988. Ordained in 1982, Fr. Joe has also served in parish ministry, justice and peace ministry and in formation, vocation and leadership for his congregation. He lives in Liberty, Missouri.
