You were made for greatness."
- Pope Benedict XVI

You Were Made to Thrive!

In the encyclical Redemptoris Missio, Pope John Paul 11 writes, "Through inculturation, the Church makes the Gospel incarnate in different cultures and at the same time introduces peoples, together with their cultures... (52)." If you are African, consider attending this retreat from Feb 3-5. It will ignite your unique call to sanctity from an African perspective. Click here for more details.

Family Apostolate Retreat

"The talks were so moving and powerful. Although I was able to relate to them, I also learned so much.

I have clear next steps on my journey of faith!"

– Judy Branco

FA Women's Retreat 2022

"I enjoyed everything about the retreat.

My most favorite part of the retreat was adoration and the procession of the Blessed Sacrament.

I loved that it was combined with the worship music.

It made it even more powerful."

- Elizabeth Raftovich

FA Women's Retreat 2022

"The music was part of the healing balm.

Jesus looking at me from the monstrance and passing by, and when He went behind me, my back was warmed, and I knew it was Him. From a song that permeated my mind and heart: "And I will build my life upon Your Love, it is a firm foundation. And I will put my trust in You alone and I will not be shaken."

- Kathleen Basil
