Rev. Joe Nassal, CPPS

Fri, Jun 8 2018 - Sun, Jun 10 2018

Preached Silent Retreat
Actual Cost: $350.00
Minimum Offering: $225.00
Most of us think mysticism is something beyond us, something reserved for those who are so attuned to God’s voice that even the clamor of the world often teetering on the brink of chaos can shake their “inward calm.” But as many of the great teachers of the spiritual life remind us, we can be modern day mystics through the practice of awareness. The Divine One is present in our everyday life. This retreat explores how we can honor the mystic within by becoming aware of the love that God has kindled in our hearts. When we live from this mystical center of prayer, we will be catalysts for compassion, reservoirs of reconciliation, and harbors of hope for one another and our world.

Rev. Joe Nassal is the author of eight books including The Conspiracy of Compassion, Rest Stops for the Soul, and Stations of the Crib. A Missionary of the Precious Blood, he has been engaged in retreat, renewal and reconciliation ministry since 1988. Ordained in 1982, Fr. Joe is presently the Provincial Director of the Kansas City Province and lives in Liberty, MO.

Day of Reflection
Actual Cost: $35.00
Minimum Offering: $35.00
The story of Ruth shows us that we do not need miracles or other signs from God to know he is working in our lives. We need only to rely on simple childlike faith that trusts, believes, desires and acts accordingly no matter what situations we are faced with in life.

Rev. Jerry Daniels is a Catholic priest and graduate of Notre Dame Seminary having been ordained to the priesthood in 2001 for the Diocese of Jackson. He is certified and trained in spiritual direction for Ignatius retreats. Since July, 2017, he is assigned to serve as chaplain of the Archdiocese of New Orleans Retreat Center.

Preached Silent Retreat
Actual Cost: $350.00
Minimum Offering: $225.00
The New Testament is populated with the questions of many people, but this retreat will look at the implications of questions raised by Jesus. “What do you want me to do for you?” “Are you also going to leave me?” “You are a Teacher of Israel and you do not understand these things?” “What were you discussing along the road?” “Have you caught anything?” These questions (and so many others) are raised by Jesus and need to be answered in every generation.

Rev. Simeon Gallagher is Director of the Preaching Ministry Office of the Mid-America Province of the Capuchin Order. He conducts retreats, parish development programs, and religious education workshops.
