Stations of the Cross During Lent



Come Join Us:

‌‌Tommie Catholic Button

 Registration is now open for the Encounter Christ Retreat!

This overnight retreat (April 5th-7th) will invite us to deepen our relationship with Christ by reflecting on our own experiences of Him, as well as on some of the encounters of those who walked with Jesus during His earthly life. Specifically, we will be looking closely at Jesus' healing of the woman with the issue of blood (Matthew 9:20-22, Mark 5:25-34, Luke 8:43-48). Please join us and spend a weekend exploring and deepening your encounter with the living Christ.


Registration is now open for the Lenten Morning Retreat for Faculty and Staff

Thursday, April 4th, 9:00-11:30am

During this retreat, we will spend time reflecting on the necessity of prayer for growth in love of God and neighbor. The retreat will be led by the Most Revered Andrew Cozzens. Light snacks and refreshments will be provided. We hope to see you there!
