First Saturday Mini-Retreats
Beginning January 4, 2014, Father Bob will offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass at Holy Family Church on the first Saturday of each month for the repose of the souls enrolled in the Holy Family Purgatorial Society. Mass will be offered at 9:00 a.m. Following each first Saturday Mass, Father Bob will offer a mini-retreat from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The mini-retreat will take place in the church and will consist of two meditations, time for some silent reflection/prayer, a conference, and an opportunity for group discussion. The first mini-retreat is entitled “Sitting in the Side Pew: St. Elizabeth Ann Seton,” whose feast day happens to be January 4. There is no charge for the mini-retreat. Coffee and donuts will be available in the Alpha Room for a “love offering.” Come for Mass or the retreat or both. February’s mini-retreat is entitled “River of Wisdom: The Most Holy Rosary” and will be offered after the 9:00 a.m. Mass on Saturday, February 1, 2014.
