Get Ready for the YOUTH ENCOUNTER SUMMER OVERNIGHT: Aug 1-2
For Young People Who have Made a Youth Encounter
Youthencounterites! This summer once again, there will be an overnight at Marygrove for you. There will be spirited singing, group prayer, and the sharing of our Christian faith. We'll gather in the afternoon on Friday and end Saturday with a barbeque lunch. And if the weather is nice, whoever wants to go, can head to the beach at Fayette State Park. The cost of the weekend will be only $20.00 per person (If anyone has difficulty with finances, please talk to Fr. Brian). Register for the overnight by emailing Marygrove or by calling Marygrove at 906-644-2771.
Looking for some peace and Serenity? Please consider the Eight-Day Silent Retreat August 3rd-10th.
This retreat is open to both Catholics and non-Catholics, and for both men and women. It will be a concentrated and guided experience of God in prayer. It is based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius. With very few exceptions, there is no talking during the retreat. Meals are silent. No phone calls, texting, emails or television. Even verbal greetings between participants are discouraged. For a few precious days, participants live by a different set of rules designed to bring rest and peace, and to heighten one's awareness of God's presence. Come join us in this restful and rewarding experience developed by St. Ignatius. It will refresh the soul and the body.
