Please give prayerful consideration to participating in the Old St. Joseph’s Lenten Retreat. During this past Advent, over 100 of our parishioners took part in the Advent At-Home Retreat.  Their response was overwhelming that we should continue to offer this program during the most sacred times of our liturgical year.  The At-Home Retreat is one way to increase our prayer life on a daily basis as we journey with Christ to Calvary.
