Stronger - A Retreat for Men
Stronger is a men's retreat and a response to Saint John Paul II's call to "be strong with the strength of faith… Today, more than in any other age, you need this strength" (homily, Krakow, 10 June 1979, no. 4). It is informed by the life and teachings of Saint John Paul II and offers men ongoing formation and mentorship in living Catholic lives to their fullest potential. Specifically, the retreat will focus on strengthening faith in four areas of men's lives - at home and at the parish, in the workplace and in society - within the context of four leadership calls by God to be a son, a husband/father, a missionary and a saint. Come be stronger in the Lord and learn to be the great leader that God desires you to be for the world! Registration is $35 and includes lunch and refreshments throughout the day.
