Consecration to St. Joseph with Father Zarse
Fr. Zarse 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 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.

Lectio: The Eucharist
“The Lamb of God,” “The Bread of Life,” “The Body and the Blood of Christ”... these are phrases we know from the Mass. But do we understand what they mean in the greater and deeper context of Scripture and Church teaching? Acclaimed author and teacher Dr. Brant Pitre digs down to the biblical roots of the Eucharist, through
its foreshadowing in the miraculous events of the Old Testament, the Gospels, and Apostolic teaching.
Join us as we restart our Mother’s Circle Ministry to engage mothers (especially new moms) in parish life, and provide faith formation and encouragement in their vocation as mothers. Group support helps strengthen and nurture the vocation of motherhood while building holy friendships. All are welcome!
