When Jesus asked the blind man what he could do for him, the man replied, “Lord, I want to see!” The Season of Lent is one of the most grace-filled times for improving our spiritual vision. In Lent, we confront sin, seek to refocus our lives spiritually and celebrate God’s mercy and love. This retreat will consider traditional Lenten themes of temptation, weakness, sin and suffering, but will focus on gaining a sharper focus in daily living.
Rev. Joe Palermo practiced law for twelve years before hearing God’s call to the priesthood.

He regularly gives retreats, missions and days of prayer on fostering the spiritual life and is currently on staff at Notre Dame Seminary.
