Hospitality is a whole day recollection designed for those who are in the helping profession or the hospitality industry such as pastors, priests, nuns, missionaries, counselors, formators, spiritual directors, customer service officers, flight attendants, and all those who extend themselves to help others.
Those in the helping profession are committed to giving the best possible care to the people they serve. However, too much giving of themselves usually leaves them burned out, finding it difficult to care for themselves and even takes a toll on their prayer life.
This recollection offers an opportunity for the participants to become more hospitable to God and themselves so they may be able to serve others better. They will be given a fresh outlook on the origins, forms, and practice of hospitality. Further, they will be able to have a deeper appreciation of God’s unwavering hospitality to them, a warm and reassuring embrace that they do not usually notice.
