Presence: The Mystery of the Eucharist

Saturday, October 8
8:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Location: Meeting Rm 1&2

Fee: $20

One Day Retreat

Although the Eucharist appears to be simple bread and wine, it is actually the “source and summit” of the Christian life. The Mystery of the Eucharist explores the truth and beauty of Christ’s real presence in the Eucharist, from its origins in Sacred Scripture, to its profound role in the life of the Church and her members. It is the crescendo of the entire story of salvation. Join us for this one day retreat and discover the powerful way that God is present to us in the Eucharist, and is inviting us into an intimate union with himself!

Includes retreat booklet, continental breakfast, snacks and lunch!

Men's Retreat: Leading your Domestic Church (Consecration to St. Joseph)

Thursdays 6:30 - 8:00 PM
Starts November 17

Location: Meeting Rm 1&2

Fee: $15 Order book at www.shopmercy.org

Deacon Nicholas will lead this men’s retreat as he shares how St. Joseph is the go-to guide for men to use as they lead their domestic church! Fr. Calloway explains that St. Joseph is the “increaser.” He has paternal love for you and the power to increase the presence of God in your life and take you to greater heights in the spiritual life. The Church and the world greatly need St. Joseph. We need him to help us return to the love of Jesus and to living the lives of virtue. We desperately need St. Joseph’s protection as well. He is our living and merciful spiritual father, holy, strong, and ready to help.

*Registrants will need to order book/materials online. See registration link for details on how to order.

Master Class for The 99 Retreat

Mondays 6:30 - 8:00 PM
Starts January 23

Location: Sacred Heart, Meeting Rm 1&2

As Catholics we are called to continuous encounter with Christ as he inspires us to share our story with others. Do you feel called to intentionally share your faith and be the one that goes out to find the “one”? Become part of the Master Class, a group of 20-30 people, who will gather for an 8-week team building and formation process in order to “gift The 99 Retreat.” Immediately following the retreat, commit to facilitate a small group of parishioners for 7 weeks based on The 99 Book Study.

The 99 Experience

March 25
8:30 AM - 5:30 PM

Location: Sacred Heart

One day of retreat, all meals included

We do not see ourselves as needing to be found, like the “one” sheep who has gone astray; nor do we see the need to seek after that “one” through evangelization. The 99 Experience inspires us to recognize that we need continuous encounter with Christ! It is a call to recognize that we just might be that one lost sheep, even though we are part of Jesus’ flock…It is also a call to recognize when we at times need to be the shepherd to others, leaving the flock to spread the Gospel message!

Please join us for The 99 Experience, a powerful encounter with Christ that will be a springboard for deepening our faith as we grow in identity, purpose, and community!
