Don't Give Up Chocolate

Rather than making some arbitrary sacrifice like giving up chocolate, why not participate in a retreat as your Lenten sacrifice? Please join us as we study "Consoling the Heart of Jesus" beginning Tuesday, February 7. This is a "do-it-yourself retreat inspired by the spiritual exercises of St. Ignatius" focused on the Divine Mercy of our Lord and his Sacred Heart. This retreat is sure to be more effective for spiritual growth than forgoing chocolate. We'll meet every Tuesday in the parish center at 6:30pm for a DVD presentation and discussion. The retreat ends on Divine Mercy Sunday, April 23. Any questions? Call Melodi Mari 241-2975
