Lenten Luncheon: Savoring and Silence in Prayer

Price: $30.00

Date: February 26, 2018

Monday, February 26
11:30 am - 1:30 pm
Cost: $30

Presented by Rita Carfagna

How can Lent become a time to open ourselves more deeply to God’s embrace? Knowing that God offers us God’s love continually, how we can we better open our hearts to receive this extraordinary gift from God? Two prayer practices: the Ignatian Examen (savoring) and contemplative prayer (silence) invite us to explore and experience God’s love.

Rita Carfagna is a retreat leader and small group facilitator at JRH and the SPA program at St. Ignatius High School, a certified spiritual director, and a member of St. Dominic parish.

In Search of Happiness

Price: $45.00

Date: April 18, 2018

Wednesday, April 18
9:00 am – 3:00 pm
Cost: $45

Presented by David Eich

During an apparition on February 18, 1858, in Lourdes, France, the Blessed Virgin Mary said to a local peasant girl, "I cannot promise you happiness in this world, only in the next." We can spend all our energy trying to figure out how to be happy in this world; or we can do what it takes to experience eternal happiness. This workshop will help to answer one key question: What can I do in this world that may well determine what I will do in the next?

Lunch will be provided.

David Eich is a seasoned health care executive with extensive experience in marketing and community engagement. As a keynote speaker, retreat leader, and author of five books, David says his greatest blessing is his family.
