Retreat on the Work of the Holy Angels Sept. 19-22 for Men and Women



WAVERLY (SNR) – Father Matthew Hincks, ORC and Father Titus Kieninger, ORC, will preach an "Opus Sanctorum Angelorum" retreat Sept. 19-22 at Our Lady of Good Counsel Retreat House in Waverly.

Opus Sanctorum Angelorum, the Work of the Holy Angels, is an international movement within the Catholic Church faithful to the Magisterium. Its mission is to promote devotion to the holy angels and a covenant bond with them through a consecration which was approved by the Holy See in 2000, so that the holy angels may lead all more effectively to God. The Work of the Holy Angels is under the overall direction of the Order of Canons Regular of the Holy Cross.

Through retreats and parish missions, the priests of the Opus Sanctorum Angelorum lead the faithful to a more conscious collaboration with the holy angels in daily life for their own personal sanctification, the salvation of souls and the sanctification of priests. The Work also sponsors the Crusade for Priests program through which the faithful can spiritually adopt a bishop, priest or seminarian, in order to pray for them that they may have the strength to fulfill their so important ministry.

The retreat begins Thursday evening, Sept. 19 and concludes with lunch Sunday, Sept. 22. All men and women who want to grow spiritually through silence, prayer, conferences and spiritual guidance, and learn about the holy angels and their ministry towards us, are welcome to the Opus Sanctorum Angelorum retreat. For more information about Opus Sanctorum Angelorum, its mission, spirituality and the Crusade for Priests program visit: www.opusangelorum.org. Because this is a four-day retreat, the suggested donation is $245.

Our Lady of Good Counsel Retreat House, now in its 50th anniversary year, is situated on a spacious acreage near Waverly. The facility includes 50 single rooms, each with a private bath. Each retreat includes meditations by the retreat master, and opportunities for silence, prayer, Adoration and the Sacraments.
