Weekend Retreat for Men & Women
Friday, January 19, - Sunday, January 21,
Immaculate Heart Retreat Center will be holding a Weekend Retreat for Men and Women January 19-21, 2018. Titled, “Dusting Off the Catechism: Everything You wanted to Know but Didn’t Want to Ask” the retreat will be led by Fr. Michael Maher, SJ.
Have you ever found yourself wondering what an indulgence really is? How the Papacy really began? Or how the first saints were canonized? Father Maher, SJ, will go into the historical background of Church history and theology to assist “Reverts” and Cradle Catholics alike. Five areas to be discussed are the following: Marian Doctrine and Catholic Customs, the Eucharist and the Sacraments, the Hierarchy, Councils and Documents, and finally, Scripture and Tradition. Bring your Catechism and let’s get going!
The weekend begins with registration on Friday at 6:00 PM and extends through lunch on Sunday. Retreat cost is $196 per person, (includes meals and overnight), and $110 for commuters (no overnights). For more information or to register call (509) 448-1224, or visit www.ihrc.net. Early registration is recommended.
