Three Takeaways from the Lenten Retreat

More than anything else, those who attended this year’s Lenten Retreat remembered these three things:


Fellowship
We are blessed with a community of people working together towards Holiness. 

Mercy 
We are challenged to remember that mercy is available to us in the sacrament of Reconciliation!

Relationship
We have a chance to grow in the understanding of our faith and in relationship with Jesus Christ

 

The Experience

Fr. John Maria Devaney shared with us stories of faith in action. Most memorable were his stories about his hospital ministry and his encounter with a homeless man who brought to life what it means to offer mercy to others. 

Fr. Sean Prince led us in Adoration, celebrated a Healing Mass, and offered the sacrament of Anointing of the Sick.  

We used our gifts to help others on the Family Day of Service and ate well thanks to the Knights of Columbus Fish Fry.

Together we learned there are many opportunities available to us when we can fill ourselves with Christ’s love and mercy.  When we are full, we can give ourselves to others as we are sent to spread the Good News!

We are so thankful for the positive feedback and suggestions for the future we received about the Lenten Retreat! 

 

Next Steps

To continue on this experience of being "sent," we invite you to join us for NET meetings held the 3rd Monday of each month at 7 pm.  Contact Ann Gill (annsongil@comcast.net / 804.387.8031) or Kay Pangraze (kay@pangraze.com / 804.308.4091) for more info.  - The New Evangelization Team (NET)
