Directed retreats vary in length from five to eight days and are a time of silence, solitude and prayer. The material for prayer is usually scriptural based.

PREACHED RETREATS

May 14--21, 2018
Facilitator:  Fr. Dennis Mason, OFM

[This retreat is open to SCC's only]

Theme:  "Where your treasure is
there also will your heart be"  Matt. 6,21  

The words of Jesus work both ways, because "Where our heart is, there also our treasure will be."  In our retreat we'll explore and pray about where our hearts are and what our treasures are.  We';; consider what makes for good spiritual heart health and what we can do about whatever compromises that health.  Jesus, Whose heart was pierced for us, will be our Gospel guide.  And Jesus, Who is the Pearl of Great Price will be our treasure goal.  We hope you'll join us.

 

Dennis Mason, OFM Conv., is a member of the Franciscan Friars in Ellicott City, Maryland.  He was ordained on May 6, 1978 and celebrates 45 years as a member.  He has served in several parishes and ministries.  Celebrating 45 years as a Franciscan, he now offers missions and retreats in the United States and abroad.

Theme:  To Be Announced

Rev. Timothy Christy, a priest of the Diocese of Metuchen, NJ was the former pastor of St. Magdalen de Pazzi Parish, Flemington, NJ.  In May, 2017, Bishop James Checchio reassigned him to a new role of leadership -- Vicar for Evangelization and Communications.

 In this role, Father Christy oversees the Office of Diocesan Communications, The Catholic Spirit, the diocesan website and social media, the Office of Evangelization, and the Office of Pontifical Mission Societies. Father Christy assists the Bishop in giving direction and substance to ensure that all the ministries of the diocese are done through the lens of the New Evangelization.

With a strong devotion to our Mother Mary and a heart for evangelization, Fr. Christy has modeled in his own life what it means to trust in the Holy Spirit.  While at St. Magdalen de Pazzi, he developed a vibrant parish that embraces the richness of Catholic Tradition and encourages discipleship for evangelization.
