February 18, 2024, Adrian, Michigan – As Lent draws to a close, all are invited to a special Holy Week Retreat: “Let the Gaze of Jesus Rest on Us during Holy Week.” The retreat is offered in person by Father Dan Crosby from 6:30 p.m. Sunday, March 24, 2024, through 11:00 a.m. Thursday, March 28, 2024, at Weber Retreat and Conference Center.

Father Dan Crosby, a white man with balding head, glasses, and wearing a brown friar's habit, smiles at the cameraThe theme is drawn from John 1:35-39, in which Jesus turned and saw two disciples of John the Baptist and invited them to “come and see” where he lived. During the retreat, participants draw closer to see Jesus gazing on them, inviting them deeper into his way of looking, loving, and living.

Father Dan, a resident of St. Bonaventure Monastery in Detroit, assists with the healing ministry at the Solanus Casey Center. Through his years of ministry as a college campus minister, pastor at inner-city and reservation parishes, provincial, and retreat center director, he has integrated Scripture and the Franciscan vision into his life and preaching.

The cost, including meals, is $160 for commuters, $325 per person double occupancy, and $425 single occupancy. Registration is required and available at www.webercenter.org; click “programs.” Registrations may also be made by calling 517-266-4000 or emailing webercenter@adriandominicans.org.
