Koinonia Retreat

Koinonia is a three day retreat program centered on the Paschal Mystery – the death and resurrection of Christ. Adults are invited to take this central teaching of our faith and apply it to daily life. The Koinonia weekend allows each person to hear Christ’s call and to experience a spiritual awakening in one’s life. Our parish teams with St. Bernard’s Parish to offer two Koinonia Retreat weekends during 2013-2014. The retreats are held on the campus of each parish with participants returning home each night. The cost is $40.00 per person; $55.00 per couple. Registration is required.

St. Edward – 2015 TBA

Senior Spirituality

This “young” group of retired parishioners meets the first and third Thursdays of the month, immediately following the 8:00 a.m. Mass (about 9:00 a.m.) in the church chapel. Various spiritual topics of interest to seniors are discussed. During 2013-2014 this group will participate in the fall and Lent Why Catholic? process.  No registration required.
