got Forgiveness?
Our Call to Forgiveness and Mercy
Wednesday, February 17th
7:00 to 9:00 PM in the Church

Forgiveness in the hardest thing we are called to do, yet it is the essence of what Christ invites us to do as His disciples. Join us for an interactive and engaging evening of reflection, music, and a 'forgiveness rite.' Using contemporary Christian music videos, Scripture, personal stories, prayer and a rite allowing us to “let go” of hurt, we come to understand what Christ asks us to do: forgive others and forgive ourselves. This Lenten presentation is for all ages and all people - single, couples, families, young, young at heart, old at heart...YOU.

This evening is facilitated by Rebecca Siar (our Echo Parish Apprentice from the University of Notre Dame) and Deacon Joe Ferrari.

Why a St. Margaret Mary Retreat?

The goal of every Christian is to grow in intimacy with God. A retreat is a great help! It is also a great help to be surrounded by people who desire a deep relationship with the Holy One. In order to become the person God desires us to be, we must create opportunities to make soul-contact with God and others. The retreat will provide such an opportunity.

Some Particulars:

The retreat will be held at Cardinal Stritch Retreat House in Mundelein, IL, an extraordinarily beautiful place to nourish the body and soul. It's a great place to take a nap or walk....or both.

+The retreat for women will be held February 12-14th; for the men, February 26-28th, 2016.

+My hope is that the participants of the retreats will be markedly diverse: young and old; married and single; former CRHP participants and non-CRHP participants.

+Each retreatant will have a private room and bath at the retreat house.

+The retreats will be facilitated by Sr. Madelyn Gould , Al Gustafson, and Msgr. Dennis Lyle.

+Time frame: Friday 5:30 PM departure through Sunday 1:30 PM return.

+Theme of the retreat: Encounter Jesus... Reflections will focus on living through Him and with Him in our daily lives.

+Cost: $225.00 (Includes meals, accommodations and bus transportation). $50.00 deposit at the time of reservation. (Total cost: $225.00)

+Please make checks payable to St. Margaret Mary Church.

If you have any questions, please call Sr. Madelyn Gould (630-369-0777).
