Blessing of the statues, new stained glass windows, and stations of the Cross, March 12th 2:00 pm, mass and reception.  When the new Chapel was dedicated Feb. 22, 2015 the building was largely finished as well as the altar furnishings.  However, the statues, the Stations of Cross, the bell, and the stained glass windows were not completed.  Fr. Jim Kent OFM Conv., the Minister Provincial of the Franciscans will be preaching and presiding, and Bishop Emeritus Ricardo Ramirez will join us in this special ceremony.  The Chapel has been a real gift to the Retreat Center and allowed us to welcome new groups and more easily celebrate liturgies and host assemblies.  Please join us if you are able.

Retreat on Mary as a Model of Prayer

Led by Fr. Tom Smith OFM Conv.  March 31-Apr. 2, 2017

 Retreat fee:  Individual room for Friday and Saturday plus the program and five meals--$152.00.    

Shared room would be $127.00 each person.

Commuter:  includes five meals and presentations--$65.00.
