About

Christ, Our Light in the Darkness: A Virtual Lenten Journey with Cardinal Seán

Join Archbishop of Boston, Seán Cardinal O'Malley for this six-part retreat. Enter more deeply into Lent and grow in your relationship with Christ. 

We will remember this Lent as one “in quarantine.” Social distancing the new norm as daily social interactions are suddenly unavailable to us. Schools are closed. We can’t go out to restaurants. Even public Mass has been suspended to curtail any further spread of this coronavirus. Many people feel alone. Many are scared. And people are thirsting for something good.

The Lord appoints shepherds to lead his flock, to be beacons of light in darkness, and to be instruments of hope to his people in times of despair. This Virtual Lenten Retreat with Cardinal Seán is a means for our shepherd to feed us, to comfort us, and to give us the hope we need right now.
