You are invited to join us for a Lenten Retreat, (in English and Spanish) in the Immaculata School Gym beginning Friday March 24, at 7pm, concluding Saturday, March 25 at 6pm, as Dr. Mary Shaw leads us on journey of healing for our families.
God works through families, our blessings from God flow through each family. However, since the fall of Adam and Eve, the effects of sin have touched every family. No family today is without areas that need God’s healing touch. Areas needing God’s healing include relationships (marriages, parents/children, stepparents/children), abuse, addictions, and the effects of the sins and hurts by those living and those in generations past.
Our ancestors provide us with an inheritance that plays a part in who we are. Just as physical characteristics are passed generation to generation (such as a mother’s eyes, a dad’s nose, etc.) so too are patterns of behavior (creativity, stubbornness, etc.), illness, and spiritual effects. Our spiritual inheritance is based on the blessings and sins of our ancestors and the effects of these blessings and sins on the present generation. (See Exodus 20:5-6; Deuteronomy 27-29; 2 Kings 17:14; Baruch 3: 1-8).
On this day of healing for families we will prepare to receive God’s healing, and offer a Eucharist focused on healing the family through the generations.
Free (a “love offering” for Peace of Jesus Ministries will be taken up during Mass.)
If you are a Eucharistic Minister, Minister of the Cup, Lector, Sacristan or Server and
would like to serve the Mass, please let me know you when you register.
