"The Passionists reach out to people, minister to them and share their lives wherever a person is in life. They are very much in tune with the crucified of today, the people who are hurting. They take the love of Christ to them."

- Pat

Good Friday 2015

 Good Friday 2015

April 3rd - 8 am - 8 pm

 Fr. Tom Bonacci, CP

The brutality of the execution of Jesus by crucifixion is not the heart of the story. Jesus transformed that cruel moment into a narrative of love, compassion, and unbounded forgiveness. As the tragic events of his betrayal and death unfold, Jesus responded with love of God in his heart. That love and trust in God became manifested in respect and friendship for friend and foe alike. Our Good Friday Services will celebrate this unbounded friendship of Jesus who continues to give us his life today.

Registration is $60 and includes breakfast, lunch and dinner. Download a FLYER or register ONLINE. 

 

 

holy week retreat 2015

EasterTriduum2015

 Holy Thursday, April 2 to Easter Sunday, April 5 

On Holy Thursday our Lenten journey comes to an end. But another journey is about to begin. Each year we are blessed with this sacred time to renew our baptism into the Passion, Death and Resurrection of Christ Jesus. This retreat will provide a space for us to explore and walk, both individually and with others, the path that leads from the Upper Room to the Foot of the Cross. 

Come join us as we gather in sacred space, to pray the ancient traditions, listen to the stories of our ancestors in faith, engage in ritual action and keep prayerful vigil. 

The retreat begins with dinner at 6:00 pm on Holy Thursday and ends with brunch following Easter Sunday Mass.

Registration is $250 per person single occupancy and $200 per person double occupancy.

Pope Francis

2014-15 Parish Retreat Theme:

Living the Joy of the Gospel 

Pope Francis, in his challenging Apostolic Exhortation, The Joy of the Gospel, has called the Universal Church to a renewed spirit of evangelization “A joy ever new, a joy which is shared.” Our retreat for the 2014-2015 season is inspired by this timely document. Each person in the Church is charged by virtue of our Baptism to commit themselves to the proclamation of the joy of the Gospel which is no less than the friendship we have in Christ. This proclamation is based primarily on our witness to one another and our service to the people of the world.

Retreats feature inspiring preached conferences, Eucharist on Saturday and Sunday, the Sacrament of Reconciliation, private conferences with staff members, specialized gatherings on specific themes, and ample personal time for prayer, reading and rest.

Married Couples Retreat

Was It Not Like Fire Burning Within Us?
MarriedCouples2015

Friday, July 17 to Sunday, July 19, 2015

 Presented by: Fr. Tom Bonacci, CP

In this year of preparation for the conclusion of the Synod on the Family, our Retreat for Married Couples will focus on the power of self-giving love to transform the World.  This love is symbolized in the fire of God’s radiance reflected in creation and the reality of human love.  Our Retreat program will probe the dynamics of the fire of love as we grow into the full stature of God’s image.  Marriage is a sacramental ministry by which the love of God manifested in Jesus is communicated by virtue of the Holy Spirit.  Marriage offers the World of tragedy and heartbreak the hope born of the courage of two people to love one another unconditionally.  Come!  Celebrate with us the fire of this love.

Registration is $250 per couple. Download a FLYER or register ONLINE.
