Events & Formation
Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola (See Home Page)
Thursday nights at 7:00 p.m., February 15 to May 10
Join us at Mary Our Queen Church for a life-changing Lent/Easter retreat experience – the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola.
The Spiritual Exercises are a “school of prayer” – a compilation of meditations and contemplative practices – that bring you into an intimate encounter with God, revealed in Jesus Christ, and lead you to interior freedom that comes from ordering your life-values, putting on the mind of Christ, and taking on an attitude of holy indifference and detachment. It might be called the ultimate freedom – the freedom that accompanies deep awareness of the true meaning of your life, so to respond more generously to God’s call in your life.
The retreat is over 13 weeks – every Thursday night at 7:00 p.m., February 15 to May 10. Each week is built off the previous week, and it is built upon a commitment of daily prayer.
Full of Grace Night of Reflection: (See Home Page)
Full of Grace tells the story of the Blessed Mother’s final days on earth. Surrounded by Peter and the remaining Apostles, she recounts the beauty and mystery of her experiences with her Son. During her last earthly days, she helps the early Church regain their original encounter with the Lord. Full of Grace is a new genre of film. It is intentionally paced in a manner that draws the viewer into deep spiritual reflection. It takes what we know through scripture and tradition and artfully tells a story with great depth and insight. It causes viewers not only to reflect on the struggles of the characters in the film, but also to ponder their own personal walk with Christ. - Saturday, March 3, 2018 – Mass at 5:30; dinner, movie, and reflection beginning at 6:30 pm in the Social Hall.

The Holy Shroud of Turin: (See Home Page)
Presented by Jim Bertrand, Turin Shroud Center. A full size replica of the Shroud will be on for display this evening. If it is the burial cloth of Jesus, then it is a precious relic. If it is not then it is an icon. Either way, it is a “sacramental”. In fact, the Shroud replica you will see has been blessed. - Monday, March 26, 2018 at 7:00 pm in the Social Hall.
