Renew Your Family, Renew the World

“Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls.“ – Saint Teresa of Calcutta

  • Imagine your family working like a well-oiled machine.
  • Imagine everyone in the family is attentive to the needs of others in the family
  • Imagine living out your family’s mission with passion, joy and no regrets

During three days this October, your family will be strengthened by turning inward toward each other and away from your daily routine. You’ll experience guided activities, relaxing free time, dynamic speakers and graces that can come only from the sacraments as you focus on how to strengthen the bonds within your family. As you learn more, it will be easy to see your family’s bright spots and learn real strategies to illuminate its shadows. Through this weekend, you will leave refreshed and revived and with a deeper understanding of God’s plan for you, your spouse and your children.

 

High Level Agenda

Mornings:  Each day will start with Lauds, Morning Prayer, and Mass, and then move on to inspirational talks and presentations and a family activity.

Mid-day:  After enjoying lunch together as a community, the afternoons include playtime, the Divine Mercy Chaplet, additional talks and Vespers.

Evenings:  Relax in the evenings with a provided dinner, entertainment, and Adoration.  And, after the young ones retire, the teens gather with the community of St. John and young adult team for fellowship, music and prayer.

Detailed Tentative Agenda, coming in August 2018
