(SNR) - Our Lady of Good Counsel Retreat House in Waverly invites men and women of all ages to a weekend retreat described as "Discipleship 101," a guide to the basic principles of prayer, the foundations behind the spiritual life of every saint.
The retreat will not only be for those who want to develop a life of prayer, but also for those looking to go deeper as disciples seeking union with Christ. The retreat would be an excellent opportunity for those who joined the Church at Easter, or anyone who wants to renew their baptismal commitment by having a better relationship with the Lord.
The retreat will be led by Msgr. John Perkinton. Ordained in 1985, he is an accomplished spiritual director, diocesan superintendent of schools, chaplain of the Marian Sisters, director of Villa Marie School, and chairman of the Diocesan Building Commission.
Please note: this is a change from the originally published schedule of retreats.
Our Lady of Good Counsel Retreat House offers 50 single rooms, each with a private bath, and a peaceful atmosphere of prayer and recollection, situated on a spacious acreage near Waverly. Each retreat includes meditations by the retreat master, and opportunities for silence, prayer, adoration and the Sacraments. The retreat will begin with rosary and Mass at 8 p.m. Friday, and end with Mass on Sunday, followed by lunch.
Upcoming event: a two-day retreat for women and mothers May 8-9 with Teresa Monaghen: "The Gospel of Joy for Women-In the Spirit of Pope Francis and Our Lady.
