The Hunger Retreat
What is the Hunger Retreat? Do something radical this Easter! Join us for the Hunger Retreat 2021! The Church of Saint Henry is teaming up with Sacred Heart, Saint Bonaventure, Saint Francis Xavier, Saint Raphael, and Saint Vincent de Paul to offer you an Easter retreat experience, April 16 & 17 (Friday evening and all day Saturday)! This year's retreat theme is "Hunger for God". St. Augustine recognized our universal spiritual hunger when he said, "man is beggar before God". Being that this year the Hunger Retreat is an EASTER Retreat, it will NOT include our traditional 24-hour fast. Instead we will focus oun attention on our spiritual hunger, the feast of grace, and the truth that "God alone satisfies". The retreat includes community service, Adoration, Mass, and talks on the social dimensions of Catholic Teaching. Join us for the Hunger 2021 and participate in heartfelt prayer, generous almsgiving, and joyful service. All 8th-12th grade youth are invited. The cost is $25. Participants will also pledge to raise financial support for national & international missions prior to the retreat.
Grades Invited: 8th-12th grade youth (and families for Friday evening service project at FMSC!)
