A huge thank you to Father Michael Sullivan,  an Augustinian Friar,and all who participated in the Parish Retreat which took place over the past 4 days.

On Sunday evening, emphasizing the Sacraments of Baptism and Confirmation, Father Sullivan invoked the Holy Spirit upon our parishioners and reminded them what it means to be “Born Again.”   On Monday evening, Father Sullivan spoke about the healing power of forgiveness and led the congregation in meditation with a “healing of memories” prayer. This night concluded with all participants having the opportunity to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation.  Tuesday evening focused on the vocations of married life, single and priesthood and religious life, highlighting our call to be Church, saints and sinners together.  On Wednesday night, Father Sullivan encouraged everyone to reinstate the custom of dinning together with their family, in so doing, giving more meaning to the Eucharist we share at Mass each week.  We concluded the evening with Adoration before the Blessed Sacrament and Benediction.  Following Wednesday’s gathering, many enjoyed refreshments in the Monsignor Woods Hall.

Again, we wish to thank Father Sullivan for his presence among us, for his sharing each night and we also thank all those who participated and all who made the Parish Retreat possible at Saint Frances Cabrini.
