Have you made a New Year’s Resolution? Could I suggest that if you haven’t, and even if you have, to resolve to make a spiritual retreat this New Year? And the joy is, you don’t even have to go far to make this retreat, because it’s hosted right here in our very own parish! The retreat that we are hosting is Koinonia (coin-on-knee-a). Koinonia is a Greek word that means the community of Jesus Christ.
On this retreat weekend you will encounter Jesus in a way that you never have before, by becoming closer to His love through the very people of our parish church. I truly hope that if you have never made a retreat, or never made a Koinonia Retreat that you will prayerfully consider making this one. Part of the beauty of this retreat weekend is that it is led by the laity of our parish. The enclosed note is from our Lay Leaders, Susannah Webb and Allison Webb, and yes they are twin sisters. So you will be receiving a double dose of blessing for making this weekend.
In Peace, Fr. Carl
