Friends of the Cross Lenten Retreat - Saturday, April 6th
Registration now closed
Along with. Louis de Montfort, manifest your passionate love for the Cross and pour forth noble sentiments of your ardent soul during this Lenten season. Like St. Paul, be “determined to know nothing...except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified” (1 Cor. 2-2); “indeed a stumbling block to the Jews and foolishness to the gentiles, but to those who are called...the Wisdom of God” (1 Cor 1-23, 24).
Join Father Daniel Mentasana, IVE, and Father Ted Trinko, IVE for a day of talks and prayer based around writings of Saint Louis De Montfort and his book "Friends of the Cross". We will prepare for Easter with reflection, prayer. Mass, adoration, and confession.
