Men’s Christ Renews Weekend

March 25 & 26

Christ Renews is an on-going process for personal spiritual  renewal of men over the age of 18 that results in the renewal of our faith community. The process begins with a weekend of prayer, talks reflection, social activities and small group discussion. This all takes place in a relaxed, prayerful, and caring atmosphere. Participants are free to share as much or as little as they wish.

It is held at the Blessed Sacrament Parish Center beginning at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, March 25th  and ending about 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 26th.

Where can I get further information?

You are welcome to call Chuck Zemanek at 989-948-9744, Chris Surbrook at 989-205-6960, or speak to any parishioner who has experienced the weekend.

What about the cost?

The renewal weekend is a gift from the men putting on the weekend to the men attending the weekend.  Volunteers provide food and service.

Think and pray seriously about this opportunity . . .

… do you need to deepen your faith?
… do you need space for your inner journey?
…is your life out of balance?
… are you out of touch with the action of God in your life?
…are you seeking to enrich your understanding of what it means to be a Christian in today’s world?
… do you see yourself as “church”? As a disciple of Jesus?
… do you need to listen anew to Jesus’ call?

If you said “YES” to any of the above…then this weekend is for you?

Note:  This is not an overnight retreat. You will be home Saturday night; and come back to the retreat on Sunday morning.

The Mass with Bishop Ken Untener

These recordings are from a presentation given at a local parish in January 2001. The audio has been edited in order to enhance the quality, but there are some sections that could not be recovered. Particularly, in the Question & Answer section.

We hope you enjoy this presentation and come away appreciating Mass and participating more fully.

Sacred in the Secular: Rosary on the Go

If you enjoy walking or jogging by yourself or with others why not turn it into a time of prayer so that you can exercise your body and your soul at the same time?!

If you are new to the Rosary on the Go, Blessed Sacrament will provide rosary rings for each participant and a weekly prayer intention based on Pope Francis’s monthly prayer intention. Please contact Lyn to request your rosary ring(s) and list of weekly intentions. In Mark 16:15 Jesus said, “GO into the whole world and proclaim the gospel to every creature…” On your mark, get set, GO!!!!

Franciscan Reflections

Spirituality is about being ready. All the spiritual disciplines of your life – prayer, study, meditation or ritual, religious vows – are there so you can break through to the eternal.
Spirituality is about awakening the eyes, the ears, the heart so you can see what’s always happening right in front of you.
-Richard Rohr
