A retreat for both men and women

Are you tired of worrying? Are you looking for practical ways to achieve peace in your life? A thirty year veteran of the corporate world and now a full time Catholic speaker and author, Gary Zimak knows just how damaging worry and stress can be. He also knows that Jesus Christ is the ultimate answer to experiencing peace in your life. In this retreat, open to men and women, Gary will share techniques that will help you break free from worry and move closer to the Lord! The weekend will include Mass, Confession, Eucharistic adoration, faith sharing, Scripture, quiet time and several presentations (conferences) by Gary Zimak.

Retreat Topics will include:

  1. Getting Personal With Jesus – Many people go through life knowing about Jesus, but never get to know him personally. Sadly, many Catholics don’t even know that it’s possible to have a close, personal relationship with Christ. Using some of the techniques featured in his soon to be released book on the topic, Gary will give you practical suggestions for becoming close friends with the Lord. In addition, you’ll discover why it’s critical that you share Jesus with others and learn simple ways to do so.
  1. From Fear To Faith– Are you tired of worrying? After struggling to overcome anxiety for many years, Gary Zimak has learned that Jesus Christ can help us to win this battle. In this talk, based on his best-selling books A Worrier’s Guide To The Bible and From Fear To Faith, Gary will share his step by step approach for breaking free from worry by encountering Christ in His Church.
  1. What If Mary Said “No”? – We often assume that Mary had to say “yes” when asked to become the Mother of the Savior. In reality, the Blessed Mother’s assent was a conscious choice on her part. In this talk, based on Gary’s book, Listen To Your Blessed Mother, we’ll look closely at Mary’s life and learn how to imitate her constant “yes” to the Lord. You’ll also discover how Mary can lead you closer to Jesus than you ever thought possible.
  1. You Can’t Walk On Water If You’re Sitting In The Boat! – Did you ever feel like God is asking you to do something, but you’re afraid? That’s perfectly normal. Whenever the Lord asks us to do anything, there is always some element of fear involved. There’s no reason to let fear stop you from letting God work great miracles in your life, however. In this talk, Gary will give you practical advice for conquering even your greatest fears and teach you how to surrender control of your life to the Lord!
  1. What Does God Want Me To Do? – As someone who went from a secure career as a project analyst to an uncertain future as a Catholic lay evangelist, Gary knows what it takes to discern God’s will. How do I know what the Lord is calling me to do? How can I learn to hear Him speak in a noisy world? How can I learn to trust in His providence? All these questions (and more) will be answered in this talk, based on Gary’s own personal journey and detailed in his book Faith, Hope, And Clarity: How To Know God’s Will. You’ll learn that it is possible to hear God speak and experience peace in the midst of uncertainty. This peace can be experienced only by surrendering to the Lord’s will.
