February Retreat

Spring semester retreats are harder to have on First Saturdays because of the way the schedule falls for breaks.  February, though, not only allowed for us to have our retreat on the First Saturday, but also the feast day for St. Blaise!  Our retreat began with Mass, throat blessings, Rosary and Reconciliation before we went to the Campus Religious Center.  

Our group today was a little smaller than we typically see, but sometimes, that is just what it is supposed to be.  After a meal of Tater Tot Hotdish (breakfast style!) and yogurt with fresh fruit, we tackled the topic of Ephesians 5:21-30.  We had the opportunity for great questions, answers and general conversation about living our lives in a way the reflects our submission to the Lord's call in our lives.  There was time for individual reflection and prayer partner discussion.  The day concluded with time in Adoration.  It was a beautiful morning spent in community with each other.

You are invited to join us for our next retreat, Saturday March 16th, beginning at the 8am Mass at Holy Redeemer Church.  Those who are in town are welcome to gather at Holy Redeemer Church on Saturday, March 2nd for the First Saturday devotions, but we know many will be gone for their Spring Break trip.
