Retreat Day for Parish Staff


April 25, 2018

10:00 a.m.- 2:00 p.m.

Sr. Elaine Betoncourt, C.S.J.


Do you sometimes feel taken for granted and unappreciated? Parish ministry can be that way: at times rewarding, and at times frustrating.  As a parish minister, you are invited to come together with others involved in church ministry to be renewed and strengthened in your important role as a public witness to the Gospel. Holy Family offers you this opportunity to get away for a day, spend some quiet time in prayer, meet some new friends, share your ideas with others, receive some food for thought and good food for the body too. Lunch and celebration of the Eucharist are also included. All parish office staff and clergy are encouraged to attend. There is no charge for this day; this is our gift to you.

There is no charge for this day, this is our gift to you.
