Do you have people in your life that you want to forgive?
Does it bother you that you continue to be angry at someone in your past?
Is it possible to forgive and not forget?

If you can relate to these questions, then COSEW’s December retreat on The Forgiveness Prayer is for you! Retreat Dec 2017 flyer

Join us for the November 4th retreat featuring The Welcoming Prayer. Mary Dwyer, nationally known for her teaching of the welcoming prayer and the forgiveness prayer, will lead us into the prayer practice, provide time to practice the prayer, and leave us with a method that we can return to in the future.
