During this silent retreat you’ll experience: a series of talks by the director, the Rosary, Stations of the Cross, Mass, an opportunity for Reconciliation, and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. This year’s director will be Fr. Ray Cotter. He is currently serving as pastor of Christ the King in Acme. The focus for the weekend will be: “Christ’s Path – The Path of Truth: Where Are We on the Journey?” Fr. Cotter will help dissolve the illusion that everyone’s opinion is equally true by shining a light on the Truth who is Christ. Doors open at 6:30 pm on Friday. Introductions at 7:30 pm (no dinner served). Bring snacks to share. Silence will begin following Mass Friday evening. Event concludes by 11 am on Sunday (no lunch served).
