Lenten Prayer Retreat

Lent is a time of alms, fasting, and prayer. Take some time to learn what to do whether you are in a period of dryness or abundance. Learn how to connect more deeply and hear more clearly to Jesus and put it into practice as we prepare for Easter. Karen will be speaking from 1pm-2pm.
