Get Involved

The Archdiocesan-wide Retreat lasts from the Feast of Christ the King until Christmas.  Each week, our priests will devote their homily to a specific topic, intended to help you understand the message of the Gospel in a new way.  These participation guides were created so that you could more actively participate in this retreat.  Use them by yourself (perhaps during Adoration), or with friends and family or in a Bible Study / Small Group setting.
