November 12th

Join us as Dr. Christ Burgwald leads a Day of Recollection from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.

Jesus doesn't just ask us to be His "fans"... he wants us to be His followers, and the difference is in the level of commitment: He asks us to follow Him wholeheartedly, without reserve... to be Totally Committed. But what does this look like, and how do we do it? In this Day of Reflection, Dr. Chris will explore and unpack what it means to follow Jesus as His disciples with Total Commitment.

December 10th

The day will begin at 10:00 a.m. and end at 3:00 p.m. This day long retreat will consist of two conferences and Mass as well as built in time for Adoration and an opportunity for Confession. Lunch is provided.

Join Deacon Paul Treinen for a Day of Recollection as he discusses the Divine Mercy message. In a world filled with anxiety, fear, and hurt Jesus uses a young woman to spread his message of Divine Mercy for all…for ALL. The Divine Mercy message is that Jesus’ mercy is available to all who Trust in Him. In trusting in this Divine Mercy we can know more peace, more joy—for ourselves and for our neighbor.
