There are many reasons to attend:
– The retreat will provide an opportunity for you to connect and build friendships with other men in the parish and to become more of a part of the parish community.
– Connecting with others will help you to realize that other men have similar struggles and issues they are dealing with.
– The retreat will allow you to take time away from your normal busy schedule for personal reflection, relaxation, fun, and good food.
– The retreat will provide an opportunity to grow in faith and enhance your relationship with Jesus.
– Men who have attended past retreats have said that the brief time away to focus on themselves and their faith has improved their relationships with their wives, children, and friends.
Many St. Rose parishioners have provided feedback about the positive experience they had on the retreat. Following are quotes from men who have attended past retreats.
“The CRHP retreat was one of the best things I’ve done for my faith and my family. It connected me to my faith in a new, deeper way and introduced me to a group of rock-solid guys who I’m proud to call my friends. I never would have met these guys had I not gone on this retreat. Signing up was intimidating at first because I didn’t know what I was getting into but it was one of the best decisions I’ve made. Trust me, you will not regret going.”
“Christ Renews His Parish was my opportunity to meet men at St. Rose of Lima Parish who valued their faith and were willing to share it in friendship and confidentiality. The retreat was an experience where I could share as much as I wanted with men that struggled just like me, juggling family, work, and social responsibilities. It was a gift to me in my spiritual growth, and made me want to give back to my parish.” Pat Gorman
