Men’s Retreat
The Hidden Messages of Jesus’ Parables
July 24 to 26, 2020

Retreat Description:  We are all familiar with Jesus’ parables—or we think we are.  But understanding His parables in the context of his time reveals hidden meanings and deeper, more challenging implications.  During this retreat we will carefully read, examine, and pray through several of Jesus’ parables, and see how understanding many of the details adds to the messages they convey.

Retreat Master: Father Wulfstan Clough, O.S.B., has been a monk of Saint Vincent Archabbey for 30 years. He is associate professor of English at Saint Vincent College.

Check-in: 3 to 5:30 p.m., Leander Hall. Retreat ends at 1 p.m. Sunday.

Charismatic Prayer Retreat
“Do Whatever He Tells You” (Gospel of Saint John 2:5).

July 31 to August 2, 2020

Retreat Description: The Blessed Virgin Mary’s final spoken words in the Bible are an exhortation which we ought to heed and follow, not just because she is our mother and the Mother of God; she also lived fully in the Word.  Come for a weekend of listening and worshipping and praising the Lord as we join Our Lady in pondering all that Jesus said and did, “reflecting on them in her heart” (Luke 2:19).  As we tarry awhile along this retreat journey, we do so with Mary in our midst, waiting for the fresh reception of “power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you” (Acts 1:8), equipping us to go forth and share His Word in a new way with a Marian heart.

Retreat Master: Father John Mary Tompkins, O.S.B., is director of human formation and vice rector of Saint Vincent Seminary, and frequently leads retreats at Saint Emma Monastery, Greensburg.

Check-in: 3 to 5:30 p.m., Leander Hall. Retreat ends at 1 p.m. Sunday.
