33 Days to Merciful Love

Mar 17 Faith Formation

On behalf of St. Rose of Lima Parish, we'd like to invite you to join us for a six-week Divine Mercy retreat. The retreat is based on the book 33 Days to Merciful Love by Fr. Michael Gaitley from the Marian Fathers of the Immaculate Conception.

The format of the retreat is simple: The participants will read from the book 33 Days to Merciful Love and answer questions in their workbooks, on their own. Then we'll all come together weekly to watch a talk by Fr. Michael on DVD, followed by a small group discussion.

The retreat will begin on Fri, Mar 17 with our first meeting in the RCIA Room, 117 (the old preschool). At the conclusion of the six week retreat, we'll make our consecration to Divine Mercy on Divine Mercy Sun, Apr 23.

Saint Pope John Paul II emphasized that now is the time of mercy, now is the time of great and extraordinary grace, a time in which all of us can become great saints –if we tap into that grace. One of the ways we tap into that grace is by asking God to fill us with an ocean of His tenderness and mercy. And we do that by consecrating ourselves to His Mercy. Journey into the heart of St. Therese of Lisieux's Little Way and explore the 33 days to Merciful Love Retreat. Please consider joining us. All are welcome! Study books can be picked up atthe church office for $10.
