Being holy... it sounds like a pretty tall order... like we have to "do everything right" which really leaves most (all) of us out because we all make mistakes. None of us is perfect!
But is that what holiness is? Not making mistakes? No-it's not. I love defining holiness as BEING WHO GOD HAS CALLED YOU TO BE. If each of us knew who God wanted us to be, it would make us happy, joyful even! It's that joy that can set this world ablaze as St. Catherine of Sienna famously quotes.
Are you ready to find out your talents, what God has called YOU to do as a student, friend, daughter, son, sibling, boyfriend or girlfriend? This retreat gives us a chance to chill out, escape from what others want us to be and to just.... be... with God, with peace.
Let's be a light in a sometimes dark world. Let's be ourselves and stop pretending. Let's light the spark.
Turn in your forms and $50 asap to participate! We leave Friday around 630pm from St. Joe's parking lot and head to the St. Thomas More Center in Panora, Iowa and we will return Sunday around 1130am.
