WAVERLY (SNR) - All are invited to a three-day healing retreat with Father William Holoubek Feb. 1-3 at Our Lady of Good Counsel Retreat House in Waverly.
The retreat is entitled “Unbound: Breaking Free from Spiritual Wounds.”
Unbound is an apostolate that helps people respond to the good news Jesus has revealed: that the Father loves every person, and then helps people apply that truth to their lives. Unbound ministry is based on the idea that the gospel has the power to make a difference in a person’s life.
Participation in Unbound is an invitation to a conversion experience; a way of prayer, using five keys that empower a person to open their hearts and respond more fully to Jesus’ invitation of abundant life. More information about Unbound is available at www.lincolndiocese.org/unbound.
Based on the book, “Unbound: A Practical Guide to Deliverance” by Neal Lozano, the retreat will help uncover the lies that have kept one from God and from His mercy. Unbound ministry prayer teams will be available on the retreat, to pray with participants using the five keys. Retreatants are asked to have read the first nine chapters of the Unbound book or watched the video series if they want members of the Unbound team to pray with them individually.
Father William Holoubek, ordained a priest in 1997, is pastor of St Mary Parish in Ashland and St. Joseph in Greenwood. He is also the director of the Diocesan Mission Office.
Father Holoubek launched the Unbound ministry in the Diocese of Lincoln after attending a 2014 conference featuring author Neal Lozano.
“The Unbound experience is a gift,” he said, “and the retreat is a great blessing for me, as it’s an opportunity to share witness of how I have found freedom in Christ in a new way.”
Retreats at Our Lady of Good Counsel Retreat House near Waverly begin with a rosary and Mass at 8 p.m. on Friday, and end with Mass and a noon lunch on Sunday.
Retreats next month for men and women also include Feb. 15-17, “Faith More Precious than Gold”; and Feb. 22-24, “American Saints and Heroic Virtue” with Father Angelus Montgomery CFR.
