• NW Deanery Advent Day of Prayer at Christ the King Retreat Center: Thursday, Dec. 5, 9 am-3 pm
The day begins with registration at 9:00 AM, followed by conferences, lunch, confessions and Mass, closing at 3:00PM. The topic for the day will be “Broken, Blessed and Sent”. The cost for the retreat is $35 payable at the door.Life is not always easy. St Paul writes, “If God is for us, who can be against us?” (Rom 8:31) God is not only for us but became one with us in his Son, Jesus. Jesus teaches us how to find the blessedness in the fragile moments of our lives. Brokenness is never the last word. The last words are” Blessed” and “Sent”. So much of our lives depends on our atti-tude. “Our attitude must be that of Christ who emptied himself (Phil 2:5-11) so that God could raise him up. How are our lives being challenged to resemble the life of Jesus? How do we allow God to transform our broken-ness into Blessedness?Please call your Parish CCW President, Jan Braun at 320-274-1803 by Monday December 2nd to make a reservation. After December 2nd, call Nancy at the King’s House at 763-682-1394.
