February 6-8: Fireside Reflection: I Begin Now!

 I Begin Now!  Three simple words to remind us to live in the present time in the “presence of God.” Life can teach us many lessons if we take time to ponder and be aware. We will look at events in our lives (challenges, obstacles and victories) and see what God is teaching us from the past to carry over into the present moment where He dwells and invites us to be one with Him.  Brian Egan, Beverly Collin and Father Angelo Bertini will present this weekend. Cost is $160 shared room, $195 private room, $85 commuter rate. Click here to register.


February 18: Ash Wednesday

The real sign of Lent is not the ashes but the cross. Jesus says, “If anyone wants to become my followers, let them deny themselves, take up their cross and follow me” (Mk 8:35). Begin this Lenten journey by coming to Cedarbrake and reflecting on the challenges Jesus lays before us. We will begin with Mass and the distribution of ashes.  Brian Egan, Beverly Collin and Father Angelo Bertini will present this retreat. Cost is $35 and includes lunch. Click here to register.
