Large Group: (15 Minutes) You'll begin each session coming together in a large group to begin with prayers and watch the 5 minute opening video for that session. This is also a great time for the Retreat Coordinator to make any announcements. Allow 15 minutes for this time and the transition of all participants to their small groups.
Small Group: (45 Minutes) Small groups meet for 45 minute discussion time following the guideline laid out in the Retreat Companion. The small group dynamic is a very important aspect of the retreat.
DVD: (30 Minutes) Following the small group discussion, participants will reconvene in a large group for 30 minutes of guided retreat on the DVD. Each session ends with a blessing and a sending.
