DUC IN ALTUM!
A unique program for young adults in their 20s and early 30s!
Have you ever asked yourself?
- What am I doing with my life?
- How do I find out what God’s plan of happiness is for me?
- How do I decide what is best for a life-giving future? Obviously, you can’t answer these crucial questions in one day or even one week! So… here is why Duc in Altum offers a discernment spiritual journey over 8 monthly encounters beginning in October 2022 precisely because it takes quality time and space to “Put Out Into the Deep” as invited by Christ in Luke 5:4 (in Latin, “Duc in Altum”).
It is hard to put down on paper the difference that Duc in Altum can make in the life of a young adults who dares to walk with God to find unique and crucial answers for one’s life! So, that is why we have an info session on what this is about on the Zoom platform: Sunday, September 18th at 3:00pm. For more info, contact Sr. Francine at 613-937-4956, or visit www.ducinaltum.ca/ottawa
