WAVERLY (SNR) – The Knights of the Holy Eucharist will host the second annual “Love Made Visible” Eucharistic adoration retreat Sept. 27-30.
The retreat, designed to bring participants “ever deeper to our Eucharistic Lord” will be held at Our Lady of Good Counsel Retreat House near Waverly. It will begin with check-in at 7 p.m. Thursday Sept. 27, and end with 10 a.m. Sunday Mass.
The Knights of the Holy Eucharist, a group of Franciscan religious brothers founded in 1998 by the late EWTN foundress Mother Mary Angelica, are dedicated to the service of God, primarily by fostering of reverent devotion to the Lord in the Most Blessed Sacrament.
Since their arrival in the Diocese of Lincoln in 2016, the Knights have assisted Bishop James Conley in encouraging the practice of Eucharistic adoration throughout the diocese, helping parishes either establish perpetual adoration, or making existing programs stronger.
The retreat master this year will be Father Zachary of the Mother of God who is a member of the Society of Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity (SOLT). His appearances on EWTN, as well as his worldwide travels enable him to help teach and lead Catholics to live their baptismal promises by responding to the universal call to holiness.
Other upcoming retreats for men and women at Our Lady of Good Counsel will be held Oct. 6-7, St. Gianna Physician’s Guild (for those in the medical profession) and Oct. 19-21, a catechists’ retreat with Father Andrew Heaslip and Matt Simmons (for educators, teachers and parents).
