Starling: A Parish Retreat

Saturday December 16th 10:00am – 3:00pm

Isn’t each one of us traveling through the vicissitudes of life, making our way towards God’s eternal throne, where we hope to be welcomed once and for all into the everlasting and totally fulfilling life of heaven, of perfect and uninterrupted communion with God? This is what the Bible means when it refers to Christians as “aliens and sojourners” in this world (1 Peter 2:11). This is what Christian spirituality throughout the ages means when it calls Christians “pilgrims” and our time on earth a “pilgrimage of faith… toward eternal happiness” (cf. Lumen Gentium 21 & 58). This Retreat on the Three Wise Men, will dig into this living parable, seeking wisdom to help us along our own Christian journey.

Lunch will be provided. Free will offerings gratefully accepted. Please contact the parish office to confirm your attendance.
