Ever wonder what the purpose of suffering is? Maybe you ask this when you’re working through an exam, having a tough time at work, or filing your taxes. However, we are able to turn our pain into redemptive suffering and advance the Kingdom of God. Come learn about this redemptive suffering, and how we can be channels of God’s mercy using it.
As with every Kepha retreat, we will have our standard lineup of Mass, prayers, food, talks, mortification, games, nursing home visit, and 2am Yawns!
And of course, … Dodgeball.
As part of the Year of Mercy, the Kepha retreats for this year will be on the Seven Spiritual Works of Mercy. This retreat we will discuss how suffering relates to the last two Spiritual Works of Mercy, bear wrongs patiently and pray for the living and the dead.
How can I proclaim the Truth and be charitable at the same time? Is it possible for objective truth of the Gospel to be conveyed in a spirit of fraternal charity? Come join us and discuss how we can spread the truth without fail, while still remaining in touch with the needs of our fellow man.
As with every Kepha retreat, we will have our standard lineup of Mass, prayers, food, talks, mortification, games, nursing home visit, and 2am Yawns! And of course … Dodgeball.
As part of the Year of Mercy, this retreat we will discuss how truth and charity relate to four of the Spiritual Works of Mercy: instruct the ignorant, admonish the sinner, counsel the doubtful, and comfort the sorrowful.
On the cross, Jesus asks His Father to forgive those responsible for His death. As Christ forgave, and continues to forgive us, so are we called to forgive. Join us as we discuss confession, God’s merciful forgiveness, and how and when we forgive those who trespass against us.
Kepha invites all dads, boys ages 7+, priests, and single men to join us on this retreat for Mass, prayers, food, talks, mortification, games, nursing home visit, and 2am Yawns! And of course … Dodgeball.
