Parish News - Lenten Opportunities at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Retreat Center - Ash Wednesday thru Easter

Great Lenten opportunities for prayer and spiritual growth at our Diocese's OLPH Retreat Center .... Our Lady of Perpetual Help Retreat and Spirituality Center in Venice is offering its Monthly Day of Prayer on Ash Wednesday.  The day begins at 9:30am and includes two conferences, a simple lunch, Eucharistic Adoration, Mass with distribution of ashes, and opportunities for the Sacrament of Reconciliation in a safe, tranquil setting along the Myakka River.  On February 20-21, Fr. Mark Yavorone OMV will offer a weekend seminar on St. Ignatius' rules for Discernment of Spirits.  The profound wisdom in these rules can help us to pray better and more perseveringly, recognize temptation and reject it, and make good decisions.  For more information or to register for either event, call Denise Riley at (941) 486-0233, ext. 3004 or CLICK HERE to register.
