What happens on a weekend?

The weekend begins on a Thursday evening and ends on Sunday. Your sponsor will make arrangements to pick you up to take you to Sarto on Thursday and get you home on Sunday unless you have other arrangements. Twenty-five participants live, study, worship, and pray together, and they listen to a series of talks each day, most by lay people, a few by clergy. Each talk reveals how God has affected the speaker’s life in a deeply personal way. You will learn from their insights, struggles, and triumphs as you reflect on your own faith journey. In the small group discussions that follow, the points from the talks expand to open each person’s heart to the reality of God’s grace in his or her life. You will not be pressured to participate in the discussion if that is not your nature. Meanwhile, members of the community will be praying for each person by name. We also have some fun and you will develop some great friendships.
