Do you know the Father's love? Do you know His unconditional, extravagant, irresistible love? Have you left this question unanswered? Have you ignored it in other pursuits? Are you afraid to face it due to shame, unworthiness or loneliness?

Jesus has come to reveal the Good News that the Father loves you, he delights in you, he longs for you to experience intimacy with Him. In Jesus Christ we are God's sons and daughters, called to share in His life, the divine life of the Father.
Upcoming Retreats to Help you Know the Father's Love
"Lies, Truth and Healing" a Retreat with Fr. Adam Sughroue
Aug. 9-11, 2019
Knowing the lies the devil tells us
Bring God into the lies and experience His healing
Fr. Adam Sughroue invites you to examine how the evil one still tries to deceive us with his empty words and false promises, trying to keep us ignorant and wounded, especially by sowing seeds of doubt about God's love and care for us. The devil lies to all of us and we cannot grow if we are falling into a false narrative. Therefore, we need to bring God into that false narrative which will bring healing and allow spiritual growth.

‘Jesus, Please Heal Me!’ a Healing Retreat with Fr. Craig Doty
Nov. 1-3, 2019
Experience God’s power and love that heals. Jesus wants to bring healing to the brokenness and wounds of our lives.
After a powerful experience attending a retreat at the John Paul II Healing Center in Tallahassee, Fla., Fr. Craig Doty seeks to help more people experience the healing that their hearts desire, and that only Jesus can give.
This retreat is for anyone who "wants Jesus to bring healing to the brokenness and wounds in their lives," he says. "All of us need healing from past wounds to our hearts, and recognizing one’s brokenness is obviously the first step.” 
"In prayer, the Holy Spirit helps us reclaim our true identity as sons and daughters of the Father who are ever more conformed to His own heart and will.”
The John Paul II Healing Center was founded by Dr. Bob Schuchts, author of “Be Healed: A Guide to Encountering the Powerful Love of Jesus in Your Life” – a book Father Doty highly recommends.
