Sacred Heart Lenten Mission 2018

Saturday, February 17th


Our dynamic and very knowledgeable guest speaker this year is Andrew Steele. Andrew will be guiding us, through dialogue and prayer, to a greater understanding of the importance of grace in our lives. We will also be discussing how grace is understood from the aspect of marriage and family as well! This day retreat is sure to be a time of great meditation, prayer, and communal discussion, so that we can unlock the great mysteries behind grace and how it applies to our everyday lives.
