What is a retreat?
A retreat is an opportunity to come away from our usual daily lives. It is an invitation to be refreshed in body, mind and spirit. It is a special time where we seek to find The One who is always seeking us. This year we are setting aside two times for the community to gather on retreat.

The principles of Catholic Social Teaching (CST) will be developed to assist in the evaluation of social situations and as criteria of discernment for any decisions or actions; it is an integral relationship between living its faith, charitable work, and social justice.
Our Lenten Retreat will begin with a simple lunch in the Parish Hall (1486 Richmond Street). There is no cost for the day but your RSVP is requested so as to plan for food. The day will conclude with the 5:00 pm Eucharist in The Chapel at Windermere on the Mount.
The day will be appropriate for parishioners from 14-84 years of age. A concurrent program will be offered for children in primary school at King's.
