It may be used in the home by individuals and families. Faith sharing groups may also find it fruitful to consider one or more of the themes as a group.

Each day of the retreat will have the following elements.

  2. Short video reflection on a topic related to the Mass readings and the theme for each day. (5-10 minutes)
