Thank you to everyone who responded to our In-Pew Phase last weekend. The Bishop’s Appeal supports ministries that impact all our parishes as well as new initiatives that prepare laity for leadership positions that will create a more vibrant Catholic Church. The second cycle of lay ministry and diaconate formation classes has begun with a committed cohort of men and women dedicated to two years of study and prayer to become parish leaders. Thanks to your support of the Annual Bishop’s Appeal, we are able to offer programs like these while sustaining key ministries. There are brochures, pledge cards and donation envelopes in each church that provide additional details about your gift at work. If you have not done so yet, we ask that you take a moment to complete a pledge card. Please put “0” if you cannot make a gift at this time so that you do not receive future solicitations. You also may make a gift online on the new easier-to-use giving platform: vermontcatholic.org/giveonline.

The Society of St. Edmund will hold a 5-Day Silent Retreat in the Ignatian tradition from June 23rd to 28th, 2019 at St. Anne’s Shrine in Isle La Motte. Using principles from the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola, retreatants will be invited to contemplate scripture passages, celebrate daily Eucharist and meet with a Spiritual Director each day.

Applicants should be comfortable maintaining an atmosphere of silence and be able to share their prayer experience with a Spiritual Director in a daily meeting of about forty-five minutes. The retreat begins at 7PM on Sunday, June 23rd and concludes with lunch on Friday, June 28th. Cost: $500. Applications/information can be obtained by calling the Shrine at (802) 928-3362 or via email at email@example.com. Space is limited due to single room accommodations.
