Save the Date: Lenten Offerings in Connecticut & Maryland

For my local Connecticuters!  Please join me for a Lenten Retreat at the Caritas Christi Center in Hamden, CT (295 Benham St.) on Saturday, March 7, from 9:30 a.m.–3:00 p.m.  Our topic will be:  “Finding Strength in the Weakness of my Cross.”  Here’s the blurb:

The Cross presents us with a paradox that turns our world upside down.  St. Paul said it well:  “When I am weak, then I am strong” (2 Cor. 12:10).  Join your brothers and sisters in Christ for a Lenten Retreat as we explore the meaning of these mysterious and life-changing words.  How does powerlessness make us strong?  How can times of suffering be times of fruitfulness?  What happens when human weakness meets the power of God?  The answers await us on the Cross of Jesus.  Join us for reflection, quiet prayer time and discussion as we take up our crosses and follow him this Lent.

If you would like to attend, please register by calling Sr. Patricia Cigrand at the Caritas Christi Center at 203-281-2569.  (Please note that the retreat center requests a donation of $40 for the day.)  I would love to have you there!

And for those of you in the D.C. area, I will be offering an expanded version of this retreat as a 3-day Parish Mission at the Church of the Resurrection in Burtonsville, Maryland from March 1-3 (Sun-Tues).  The sessions will be in the evenings.  I will have the finalized times on my “Upcoming Events” page soon.
