Parish Retreat with Father Simeon Gallagher

Each and every one of us has been affected in one way or another by Covid. Many of us do not like changes, and above all we want to move beyond feeling restricted in our daily lives. Please look at the parish retreat as a way of spiritually recharging so that we may recapture the assurances of our faith!

** The daily discussion will be the same for both the morning and evening sessions. Please feel free to attend either session. **

Mass: 8am
Break: 8:30-9:00am
