WAVERLY (SNR) - Our Lady of Good Counsel Retreat House in Waverly invites all men and women to a Divine Mercy Sunday weekend retreat April 6-8 with Father Christopher Kubat, entitled “Encounter the love and mercy of Jesus Christ.”
“This retreat on Divine Mercy will be a chance to experience the love Jesus bestows from His Father in the Holy Spirit,” Father Kubat said.
He said celebrating “Mercy Sunday” weekend “will help you to be immersed in the bountiful ocean of God’s mercy.”
“One of the most important parts of a retreat is not the preached talks,” Father Kubat continued, “but the times of quiet, individual prayer spent meditating on those talks. The retreat will explore the benefits of silent prayer as a catalyst to encounter the love and mercy of Jesus Christ, something especially needed in this age of noise.”
As director of Catholic Social Services in the Diocese of Lincoln, Father Christopher Kubat is known for his “Seedlings” column in the Southern Nebraska Register, and the many charitable works done through Catholic Social Services under his direction.
A priest for 19 years, Father Kubat previously served at St. Cecilia Parish in Hastings and St. Mary in Lincoln.
Our Lady of Good Counsel Retreat House is a place of peace and sanctuary near Waverly with individual rooms, private baths, catered meals, and spacious outdoor grounds.
