SLC to host weekend retreat about Immaculate Conception Holy Day
The faithful are invited to a new weekend retreat called “The Immaculate Conception Retreat” Dec. 7-9 at the Spiritual Life Center.
The director of the SLC, Fr. Ken Van Haverbeke, will lead the weekend which will focus upon Mary, the Mother of God, and our mother. Time will be set aside for prayer, a few short conferences on Mary’s role in the Church, and Eucharistic Adoration.
The program begins Friday evening at 7:30 p.m. and goes through lunch on Sunday, but the retreat is formatted in such a way that even partial attendance is welcomed and encouraged.
“If someone can only come for Friday evening, or just Saturday, we would still love to have them! This retreat is designed to fit into nearly anyone’s schedule,” said Fr. Van Haverbeke, “We want people to be able to invest some time growing spiritually this Advent.”
Regular retreat pricing applies for attending the entire weekend. To attend for part of the weekend, please call the center for the rate. Full weekend reservations can made online at or by calling (316) 744-0167.
