LISBON FALLS — “It is a new kind of way of doing a retreat. We hope it is successful!”
Fr. Daniel Greenleaf, pastor of Prince of Peace Parish in Lewiston, invites all men of the Diocese of Portland to gather for a special retreat on the first weekend of Lent.
The retreat will be held on Saturday, March 5, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Holy Trinity Church, located on 67 Frost Hill Avenue in Lisbon Falls. The free event is being sponsored by Prince of Peace Parish and the parish’s Knights of Columbus councils. Lunch will be provided, with presentations planned by Fr. Greenleaf, Fr. Patrick Finn, and Fr. John Sacreties.
“I’ll be presenting on charity, Fr. Patrick will present on fraternity, and Fr. John will present on unity,” said Fr. Greenleaf.
To sign up for the retreat, visit www.sabattuskofc.org/mens-retreat or call Bob Michaud at 207-740-6585.
