God's Embrace Ministries, Inc.
The mission of God's Embrace Ministries is to motivate Catholic faithful into becoming ardent disciples of Jesus Christ, by offering them a comprehensive school of prayer and spiritual formation through participation in small group meetings and retreats. We seek to accelerate the appreciation of their Catholic faith and Church, leading to a deeper personal relationship with the Blessed Trinity, and devoted service to God's covenant family in parish and diocesan communities.
God’s Embrace is dedicated to make the call to holiness an attractive and appealing invitation from God to us, in our burdened and confused lives. We embody the spiritual disciplines and wisdom of our Catholic saints, mystics, and theologians, thus striving to offer the best in our Catholic heritage.
We offer formation programs geared toward facilitating the creation of ardent disciples who would glorify God through the witness of their lives and service of the Church. The program focuses on:
(1) Familiarity with the Bible so that our spiritual formation is steeped in God’s revelation of Himself through Jesus Christ, and the Trinity's glorious plan of salvation for us.
(2) The rich heritage of Catholic Spirituality offered to us through the desert Fathers and Mothers, the mystical writings of the Church Fathers on the Trinity and Church, the contemplative traditions of the great Monastic Orders, and the ineffable teachings of the likes of Saints Francis of Assisi, Ignatius of Loyola, Teresa of Avila and John of the Cross.
(3) That we know well the Catechism of the Catholic Church. The desired outcome is the living of our lives within the Trinitarian Embrace, inextricably linked to the divine life of the Trinity and to one another in Christ.
God's Embrace offers Team-Based retreats, parish missions, spiritual direction, directed retreats, and days of reflection. We also have an institute for the formation of spiritual directors within the Diocese of Victoria, Texas.
