2018 Lenten Retreat

“Return to me with all your heart” (Joel 2:12)

All parishioners, whether they are students or non-students, are invited to join us for our Lenten Retreat. This will be a fantastic opportunity to make silence in our hearts and hear the merciful voice of the Lord in preparation for the most important season of the Liturgical year: the Easter Triduum.

The retreat will take place over two days:

Day 1: Friday, March 16. Begins with Stations of the Cross at 5:15pm in St. Agatha - St. James Church.

Day 2: Saturday, March 17. From 8:30am to 5:30pm in St. Charles Borromeo Seminary.
