The Annual Retreat is an opportunity to step away from your day-to-day life for a weekend and focus on your relationship with God. This is a silent retreat, and you will have time to yourself to both look back on your past year of spiritual life, and to make a plan for the year to come. There will be talks to teach you and to guide you in your prayer, and an opportunity to receive the sacrament of Confession, and the Mass.
This year's retreat will be preached by Fr. Maximo Stock. The theme is taken from the Mystery of the Transfiguration:
"In your light, we see light itself"
The Annual Retreat is for sophomores and above who have gone through the Alpha program and are now seeking to deepen in their knowledge of the faith and strengthen their prayer life.
The cost of the retreat will be $50, paid ASAP to Connor York or Melanie Pollard upon registration (Make checks payable to St. Mary's Catholic Church). We will organize carpools to Mt. Angel. Logistical information and a packing list will be emailed out to retreatants as the retreat approaches.
