Opus Angelorum Day of Recollection at Grotto - July 29, 2007

It's July, and just as I was wondering if the priests of Opus Angelorum were going to do another Day of Recollection, I heard it advertised in the announcements Sunday and there were mini-posters at Grotto.

Folks, these afternoon retreats are a blessing. Come to Grotto for the afternoon starting with holy Mass at Noon, followed by our weekly benediction outdoors (weather permitting), grab a BBQ'd hamburger, hot dog or sausage in our gym and head over to the conferences in the school lounge. Bring the whole family! It is free, but we often pass a basket for those willing and able to give a donation to help support their work.

Here is the complete schedule which runs until around 5:00 with some time built in for adoration, and yet another benediction.

Theme: The Angels and Prayer
Location: Assumption Grotto (click for directions)
Noon: Mass
2:00 First conference
2:45 Break
3:00 Second Conference followed by Q & A
4:15 Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament

(Opportunity for Confession)
5:00 Final Prayers and Benediction
