Good Morning Everyone! I held a virtual retreat yesterday at Our Lady of the Assumption Parish, in Turlock, where our family attends Mass (under normal conditions). I want to give a big thank you to Fr. Manuel, the pastor at OLA for celebrating Mass with us, and for letting us use their beautiful parish for the virtual retreat. I want to also thank Helder DeSousa of Luso Media for handling all the technology and being with us from the beginning to the end!
The retreat focuses on the Precepts of the Church, as taught in the Catechism of the Catholic Church, what it means to be a Christian, and a member of the community of faith. It starts at 8:30am with Mass, has three talks, and ends at 12:00pm. It contains questions for reflection or discussion and would be great to share with family, friends, and/or other parishes. I have included the slideshow pdf below as well, as you might find it helpful.
The retreat is entirely without cost, but if you would like to make a small donation you may Venmo Stephen Valgos, or follow the instructions during the retreat itself. May God bless you abundantly and keep you safe.
