The men of the parish are scheduled for the annual retreat at St. Francis Retreat Center September 11-13. This retreat is a great opportunity to spend a weekend away and focus on deepening a relationship with Christ in fellowship with other Catholics. The theme for the retreat is “Inspire and Light a Fire: Bringing Beauty, Goodness, and Truth to a Barren World.” This retreat is based on the book “To Light a Fire on the Earth” by Bishop Robert Barron. The Retreat Center has put into place social distancing protocols and is confident that they can hold the annual retreat this year while keeping retreatants safe. You may register by calling the Retreat Center at 517-669-8321 or visiting their web site: www.stfrancis.ws. Suggested offering for the weekend is $185.00.
