Diocesan Annual Retreat
Heart and Summit: Outlining the Eucharistic Celebration
February 28-March 1, 2015
Each year the Parish Life & Lay Leadership Secretariat hosts a diocesan wide retreat. This year’s topic is Heart and Summit: Outlining the Eucharistic Celebration. The Eucharistic celebration is called the heart and summit of the Church's life: from the heights of heaven, to the walls of the church, to the words we say, to those whom we are to be witnesses in the world, all is centered on the loving self-sacrifice of Christ made present in bread and wine, flesh and blood. Join us as we come both to gain in knowledge of the Sacrament-most-high and, ultimately, to sit in awed contemplation of the profoundest of mysteries. It will be led by our four ECHO interns that have been serving in our diocese for the past year and half - Mary Frances Brennan, Kathleen Dierberger, Tim Singler, and Nathan Williams.
The retreat begins with 9:00 am Mass on Saturday, February 28, 2015 and concludes after the 9:30 am Mass on Sunday, March 1, 2015. There are two options available when you register – one is with an overnight stay and the second is for those who would like to commute. The cost is $100 for double occupancy, $125 for single occupancy and $80 for those commuting. Deadline for these prices is February 4, 2015. After that there is an addition $20 added on.
