Pre-Lent Retreat with Fr. Ricky Manalo at St. Raphael’s
February 23 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
“Come to the Feast: Nourishing the Assembly, Nourishing our Souls”
This event is for all who serve in Liturgical Ministries.
PARTICIPANTS MUST REGISTER FOR THIS EVENT! Website link for registration is below.
What is the ministerial vocation of liturgical ministers, from cantors, choir members and instrumentalists, to lectors, hospitality and eucharistic ministers, and servers, to deacons, preachers, and priests? Through the working of the Holy Spirit, we are called to lead the assembly into full, conscious and active participation. We help foster a spirit of prayer and communal welcoming, and challenge ourselves to go forth into the world and proclaim the good news. In the end, we remain open to God’s grace to work through us, so that we may “present [our] bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is [our] spiritual worship” (Romans 9:1).
– Note, we will begin with Mass at 9am, and lunch will be part of this day
