St. Frances de Sales tells us that the key to a joyful, energetic way of life for God and others is to never tire of starting over again. This retreat will be a walk with Mary, the Saints, and saints in the making, highlighting the virtue of perseverance. We will show how Mary and the saints witnessed many ways to live life with energy for God and others, even in the worst of circumstances! Our call to holiness motivates us to be focused, energized, and joyful, thus growing in the life of the Holy Spirit.

It is co-sponsored by the Pro Sanctity Movement, and includes talks, times of silence, Adoration, Sacrament of Reconciliation, Holy Mass both Saturday and Sunday and spiritual direction.
