This fall we are celebrating the 55th anniversary of the close of the Second Vatican Council, an event St. John Paul II described as the great gift of the Spirit to the Church in our time, and yet it in many ways it remains an unopened gift. This day of reflection will provide an introduction to the Council as a whole and to some of its key documents and will show its continuing relevance to Catholics today.

Retreat leader is Dr. Chris Burgwald, Director of Adult Discipleship and Evangelization for the Catholic Diocese of Sioux Falls.

The day begins at 10AM and ends at 3PM.  Lunch is included.

This is a free will offering event.
