About The Event

In this Lenten retreat, we will contemplate Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem recalled during the Palm Sunday Procession with Palms. “Fear not, O daughter of Zion! Your king approaches you on a donkey’s colt” (Jn 12). What transpires next in the gospel is the mystery that contains and calls us

to renounce ego and serve Jesus in the poor; that is, the mystery of Jesus’ own descent into poverty,

and his invitation to do likewise. Taking this journey with Jesus, we will consider how to evangelize today’s world by being a church that is poor and for the poor.
