Ash Wednesday Retreat

Beginning Our Lenten Journey: The Great Forty Days

Presenter: Father Nicholas Terico, O. Praem.

Date: February 26, 2020

Offering: $ 35 person

Please register by February 21, 2020

Lent is not really a time for private, pious practices and resolutions to make us better people. All too easily this can lead to isolation and even self-absorption, quite the opposite of what is intended by these “great forty days”. Rather, Lent is about a call to become completely new, changed and transformed through the power of God’s grace.

Through the conferences, liturgies and times of significant silent reflection on this day of retreat, participants are invited and perhaps challenged to enter afresh into the Lenten journey this year, leading to a new way of living throughout the year.

Come join us on as we travel the Lenten road of transformation together, experiencing the grace of God again offered to us on this day.
