Presenter:  Anita Mascarenhas


Come join us on the February long weekend for a reflection on the Heart.

The Bible mentions the heart almost 1,000 times. In fact, what it says is that the heart is that spiritual part of us where our emotions and desires dwell.  Explore the latest scientific discoveries of the “intelligence” of the heart and learn about prayer from the heart.


The retreat begins with Holy Mass at the Shrine at 11:15 a.m.

on Saturday and concludes with breakfast on Monday morning.
