Light of the World Retreat March 13-16

There is a Light of the World retreat next weekend, March 13 through 16th. The retreat starts in the evening of the 13th. It goes through all day Saturday from 8:30am to about 8pm, then from 8:30am till about 8pm on Sunday and Monday in the evening only.

This retreat is given by the efforts of other parishioners, just like you. There will be talks, stories, a little humour and time for adoration and confession and good conversation. Having that relationship with God takes an effort. Take this time out for God. You will never regret it!

Food is provided.
