About The Event
Are you tired and weary? The Lenten season invites us to contemplate God’s gift of mercy and salvation as we journey toward the waters of new birth and prepare to renew our baptismal promises at the Easter Vigil. During this time of retreat, participants will be invited to reflect on the symbol of water and their baptismal priesthood.
Check-in and refreshments will begin at 9:00am. Morning prayer will begin at 9:30am.
We now have a virtual payment option! You may pay via PayPal @NPMDC - earmark the payment with your name and “Lenten Retreat” – funds sent using the friends and family option will save our chapter extra fees for processing.
