ACT TODAY: If you have considered registering for the Praying With St. Ignatius parish retreat starting January 16th and have not yet, registrations are being accepted today.
A person who experienced this retreat last year said it was “life changing … the kind of change that happens through Grace … I experienced a renewed and deepened relationship with Christ … I gained an awareness for God in everyday life … and grew from memorized prayer said by heart to praying from the heart with joy and awareness....”
Join us to experience this prayerful transformation yourself!
