Please join us for a day of recollection on Good Friday, April 15, 2022, from 9 am – 1 pm. Msgr. Michael Witt will lead us through two presentations, some time for reflection and meditation, and we will conclude with a light Lenten lunch. If you would like to attend your own parish’s Good Friday services, you will have plenty of time to do so later in the afternoon! Cost is $30 per person, and registration will open up early in 2022.
