About the event

“Jesus said, ‘I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger and whoever believes in me shall never thirst”

John 6:35

Bread is a form of nourishment for body and soul. Jesus gives himself to us in unconditional love outpoured to sustain us in this life and prepare us for the next. He is a model for our own living today. There is significance of bread as a metaphor and the actual staple for life. Start Lent with a morning of retreat. Come to explore the deeper meaning, reflect, and enjoy Bread as a gift and an invitation for your Lenten journey.
