Full Day Seminars

IntoTheDeep2012-8halfx11The unprecedented grace of the Great Jubilee of the year 2000 has – in the words of blessed John Paul II – poured out upon the Church “a river of living water…the water of the Spirit which quenches thirst and brings new life (cf. Jn 4:14)…the merciful love of the Father which has once again been made known and given to us in Christ” (Novo Millennio Ineunte 1).

In the midst of the ever increasing collapse of our post-Christian culture, numerous lay men and women have experienced this unmerited grace and hunger for deep spiritual realities.

Our full-day seminars endeavor to respond to that hunger. Although they have similar components to our parish missions, they also have several unique characteristics. Four complete teachings on a given theme are presented; teaching that is inspiring and profound, more thorough and comprehensive than our parish missions permit.

Having the better part of a day available also affords participants time for fellowship, prayer and a taste of “getting away from it all”.

Hosting a Behold His Glory evening to conclude the day – which is an option – provides your faithful with a mini-retreat in the midst of the challenging demands of the duties attending their vocation to marriage and family life.
