Please join a small Faith Sharing Group during Lent, to get to know Jesus more deeply in the Sunday Scriptures, and your fellow parishioners at a deeper level.
The program we will use this year in With Jesus to the Cross: A Lenten Guide on the Sunday Mass Readings.
Groups meet beginning the week of February 20. Sign up now as a host, group facilitator or group member. Groups are not yet formed but will be gathered as people register.
Fr. Adrian Burke, OSB, who presented a Retreat on Practical Christianity in 2016, will return for a one-day Retreat on May 13, 2017.
"Pray Always" -- Retreat conferences will focus on the essential nature of prayer as prompted by grace and guided by the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit teaches us to surrender willful self-assertion to grow in willingness to surrender to God's guidance. We can then change our old ways of thinking, seeing, and responding to circumstances and events, enabling us to embrace the "mind (or attitude) of Christ" (Phil. 2:5).
