6:00 – 7:30 P.M. – Reflection
Nothing can separate us from the love of God in Jesus Christ. We all belong to Christ. He has joined us to himself by his death and resurrection. In this great paschal mystery, our hearts were made Christ’s forever. We are, in short, now a part of the body of Christ, no matter what. Even – or especially – if we are outside the fold and know it.
How can we resist the temptation to exclude anyone (including ourselves) from the Sunday assembly, which is the place where grace is shared in such abundance?
7:30 P.M. – Ritual Prayer

9:00 A.M. – Morning Prayer
9:30 – 11:00 A.M – Reflection
The Church is a movement more than it is a “membership organization.” It’s a movement of the Spirit of Jesus to the world. The Church is a movement within our own hearts. Faith is constantly growing and changing; it’s constantly in movement, no matter where we are on the journey.
How can we live our Christian life as part of a movement, not a club? How can our life be anunending process of announcing the Good News, and assisting folks to live by it?
11:00 A.M. – Ritual Prayer: Anointing of the Sick
5:30 P.M. – Supper
6:00-7:30 P.M. – Reflection
In the early years of the Church, baptism was a major sacrament was a major sacrament that, along with Eucharist, initiated the Christian into a life of faith. But today, baptism holds a much more minor place in most parishes, as though it were “just one of the seven sacraments.” This despite that half of Sacrosanctum Concilium, the document renewing the liturgy at Vatican II, discusses the central place that baptism and Eucharist have in the Christian life. In fact, baptism is on par with Eucharist, and we should raise its status to reflect that.
How do we understand and – more importantly – LIVE our baptismal promises?
7:30 P.M. – Ritual Prayer

5:30 P.M. – Mass
6:00 P.M. – Supper
6:30-8:00 P.M. – Reflection
Pope Benedict XVI taught that “The words, ‘Rejoice, because God is with you; he is with us,’ are words that truly open a new epoch…with an act of faith, we must once again accept and understand in the depths of our hearts this liberating word: Rejoice!’” No one who has a powerful encounter with Jesus Christ can long sustain her or his faith without support from the community. Christ is encountered in community, not alone.
How can we be vessels of joy? How can we grow as a community that is a proclamation of the joy of the Gospel?
8:00 P.M. Ritual Prayer
