TO ALL MEN
OF OUR LADY OF THE WAYSIDE PARISH:
What's missing? A better version of you.
Welcome Retreat (C.R.H.P. 2.0)
2018 u April 14-15

How does it work?

WELCOME is a weekend retreat given by men who have previously attended. Through fellowship, faith sharing, hospitality, individual and group activities, Mass, and more, participants have the opportunity to step back from the everyday to reflect on their lives and their spiritual journeys and build meaningful relationships with other men in the parish.

The 2018 Team:

Mike Aulenta, Jay Cherwin, Bob Ciccone, Rich Craig, Kevin Dolsen, Jerry Brennan, Chad Fischer, Mike Heraty, Jamie Jackman, JP Petermann, John Quick, Antonio Romanacce, Tony Russo & David Woods.


We invite men who are seeking to enrich their faith journey for a weekend of spiritual renewal. We will enjoy each other's fellowship, explore the Gospel and how it impacts our lives, and reflect on our personal relationship with God. With prayer and renewed grace, we hope to be better followers of Christ in order to impact our families and community in a loving, meaningful and Christian way. This is how Christ renews his parish.
