On Our Lenten Day Retreat

On Our Lenten Day Retreat

The Annual Lenten Day Retreat, hosted by the Family Branch, was held on April 12 with the theme:  “A Church without joy is unthinkable!” [Apostolic Exhortation of Pope Francis, Gospel of Joy]  

Father Marcelo Aravena, presenter, gave two excellent talks on the joy we receive in proclaiming Jesus, in having room for the poor – to hear their cries, to listen and act.  It is a joy that brings us peace.  The Sacrament of Reconciliation, Eucharistic Adoration, the Stations of the Cross and Rosary in the Rosary Garden were opportunities offered.  The attendees had time for reflection after the talks and enjoyed the sharing and fellowship.  The retreat closed with Palm Sunday Vigil Mass in the Shrine which was preceded by a procession with palms.  It was a beautiful day to reflect on our personal Lenten program and the joy we live daily through our faith.
