Evening of Recollection: How to Forgive Ourselves & Others
January 8, 2019
Join us on Tuesday, January 8, 6:30-7:45pm at Sacred Heart Church for this beautiful evening!
Fr. Allan Weinert, who grew up in Kewaskum, Wisconsin, presents this evening of recollection to help us prepare for Lent. He now serves as the Parochial Vicar at St. Alphonsus / St. Mary's Assumption Parish in New Orleans, Louisiana.
As we prepare to enter into Lent, this is a good time to look at the direction and meaning we have set for our lives. What do we want to do to make our life better for ourselves and for those with whom we live? Lent, and the transition from the old to the new year, gives us an opportunity to measure ourselves. What did we resolve during the past year? Has anything changed inside of us? Such introspection is a sign of our desire to live the best way possible for ourselves and for others.
Blessed, Broken and Scared - One Day Retreat
February 23, 2019
We are the broken door.
We are in need of repair.
The challenging part is we must not wait until the door is perfect before inviting others into our life to meet Jesus who dwells within us.
It is through Jesus that we bring others to God. Jesus calls us as we are, broken, to be the door through which others can enter to meet Him.
Mark your calendars for Saturday, February 23. “Blessed, Broken and Scared” will be a day of prayer and reflection as we hear Brian Pusateri’s message of God’s mercy, as he inspires us to live a more fulfilling and impactful Christian life. Watch for more information in upcoming bulletins.

April 2, 2019
LIFE OF PASSION, LIFE OF LOVE
In this parish mission, Adam Storey will show how a life of passion must be rooted in a loving relationship with Jesus Christ. It is in Jesus where we encounter the most passionate lover conceivable. It is in Him where we find fulfillment of the heart's deepest desires. Adam will explore the value of this relationship, common challenges to this relationship, and he'll offer practical and simple ways for everyone to grow in this most precious relationship with God.
Sunday, March 31, 2019: 6:30pm, Holy Family Church
The heart of the Christian life is about entering into a loving relationship with God- who first seeks us. During this first evening, Adam will explore why we must open our hearts to God, helping participants see that He is what our hearts most long for- for it is in this relationship where we are most alive. Using the lives of the saints and personal stories, Adam will show that our relationship with God truly has the power to transform us.
Monday, April 1, 2019: 8am, Holy Family Church
This morning session will cover a condensed version of the topics covered in all three evening sessions.

When the Rubber Meets the Road:
It's easy to think that a vibrant relationship with Jesus is a gift only offered to a few. Not so. In this talk, Adam will show that developing and nurturing this relationship with Jesus is accessible to all of us. however, there are challenges along the way. In this second evening, Adam will explore common challenges for every Catholic, including struggling to find time, feeling awkward, and attempts to hide ourselves from God- and what we can do about it.
Tuesday, April 2, 2019: 6:30pm, Holy Family Church
Let's Get Real:
Every love story is different, and so is every relationship with the Lord. However, there are small patterns of holiness every Christian can embark upon each day. In this final evening, Adam will offer five simple and concrete disciplines a disciple of the Lord Jesus can add to their day, allowing them to greater fall in love with God and his Catholic Church.
