Perhaps now is the time. Please join me for a relaxing retreat from Sunday evening October 7th to Tuesday morning, October 9th at Mt. Irenaeus, a Franciscan Mountain Retreat House situated in the Allegany Mountains near Olean, NY, about a 2 hour drive from Webster. Their website, www.mounti.com, provides insight into their Gospel Mission of “Making All Things New” as well as practical information for your stay.
There are plenty of hiking trails and places to spend time in restful thought with our Lord, our companion and our friend. This is not a directed retreat and is meant to provide quiet, contemplative time for yourself or with others in the group. We live alongside the Friars and ease into their way of life with morning and evening prayer along with a Monday evening Mass and an opportunity for penance. We can accommodate about 12-15 people on this retreat. Spots will be filled on a first come, first serve basis. I will add people to a waiting list if needed. To register or if you have any questions, please email me at [email protected] or call me at 585-233-0334.
Peace, Deacon Jim
