The Theme is Growth in Prayer and Conversion of Heart

with Fr. Brian Mullady, O.P.

Please be sure to plan your schedule to include our parish retreat. Next weekend we will have a visiting priest, Fr. Brian Mullady, O.P. (Dominican Order of Preachers) who will speak at all the Masses in preparation for his special Monday through Thursday morning and evening conference talks. His morning talks will follow the 8AM Masses and begin at 9AM. The evening talks will be given during the special 7PM Masses and more or less be repeats of the morning presentations.

Fr. Mullady is a very well known parish retreat speaker and author as well as teacher on DVDs. Many of our parishioners from our adult faith formation sessions are familiar with some of his wonderful video sessions. Some of you have seen him on global Catholic television channel EWTN. He will have some of his materials available for purchase when he is here.

Please spread the word and invite your friends and neighbors. It will be worth your efforts to participate. It is a great way to prepare for the season of spiritual renewal we call Lent which will soon be upon us. God has great things ready for you and for all who humble themselves before him and open to his will.  More info at: www.fatherbtm.com
