BOOMERS ANNUAL RETREAT


Monday, May 8, Beginning with Mass at 8:30am at Pax Christi

BOOMERS AND BEYOND invites all seniors of the parish to our annual end-of-the year retreat, co-sponsored with the Young at Heart senior group at the Church of St. Edward. Retreat begins with Mass at 8:30am, followed by a light breakfast, presentation, and lunch will follow in the Hall of Martyrs. Our featured speaker will be Dr. Jacquelyne Witter, well known retreat leader, speaker, educator, and spiritual director. She has chosen to address us on the topic of We Are an Easter People and Alleluia Is Our Song! As Christians we are called to be filled with joy and to share that joy with everyone we meet. Pope Francis, in his writing The Joy of the Gospel, reminds us of this call and invitation. So what does this look like in ‘real life’? We will consider what joy is and the difference it makes in our own lives and in the lives of the people around us.

Fee for this event is covered for those who are Boomers and Beyond members. Those who are not members may enjoy this special event for a fee of $15 per person with reservation and payment in advance.

Pre-registration is required for both members and non-members by Tuesday, May 2. Register at link above or by calling the RSVP line at 952-405-7251.
