PARISH MISSIONS & RETREATS


With the Eyes of Mercy - Reflections for Divine Mercy

Mercy has changed the world and can still change it today. We explore the them of Mercy in light of the message of Divine Mercy given to us by our Lord through St. Faustina (Talk 1). Baptism, Confession and the Holy Eucharist are the Sacraments in which we receive the Divine Mercy (Talk 2). As baptized Christians, we are duty bound to evangelize as Christ did, with the eyes of Mercy (Talk 3).

Faith, in Light of the New Evangelization

If you want to do something to grow your faith then share it with others. This talks discuss the what Faith is and how we are called to be faithful. But to be 'faithful' means more then just avoiding evil, it means to be FULL of Faith (Talk 1). In order to grow in our faith we must be a people willing to renew and recommit to a prayer life steep in tradition and the sacraments (Talk 2). In order for us to be able to share our Faith we need to have a solid foundation with "The Seven Pillars of Effective Evangelization" (Talk 3).

Evangelization: Why Not?

This series on evangelization gives the real essentials for effective evangelization. Casting Nets discuss the moral obligation to evangelize as delivered by Christ and His Church (Talk 1). At the heart of being able to share our Faith is the development of our own relationship with Jesus Christ (Talk 2). However there are methods that can help and hurt the spreading of the Gospel they we should be aware of as Christians (Talk 3).

Change Yourself, Change the World (with a Lent or Stewardship reflection)

Casting Nets discuss the three pillars of the spiritual life in the light of the New Evangelization. Just as with any relationship communication serves as the key, well prayer is the cornerstone of our relationship with Christ (Talk 1). God has created us for communion with Him therefore we become fully human by giving ourselves away which we practice in almsgiving (Talk 2). This gift of self can be perfected with true acts of fasting (Talk 3). Prayer, almsgiving, and fasting have a transforming affect not just on us but also on those we encounter.
