Star of the Valley Church hosts Lenten retreat


Wednesday March 2017 - 1:30pm to

Star of the Valley hosts “It’s Lent Again! What are you doing to make your life miserable?” on Wednesday, March 29, at 1:30 p.m. in the Monsignor Fahey Parish Center, 495 White Oak Dr. All faiths are welcome.

Fr. Anthony Rosevear, O.P., a Dominican priest with the Western Dominican Province in San Francisco, will be the speaker. He will address Lenten misconceptions and a deeper growth in the interior spiritual life. Some of our observances or approaches to Lent aren’t really conducive to interior growth and don’t really address where we need to develop spiritually.

Deeper spiritual growth is through an informed prayer rooted in scripture, study, meditation, contemplation and an ongoing conversation between the soul and its deepest friend, Christ. Living the mystery of the Eucharist daily brings alive the goal of the Lenten season: the joy of Easter. (Living this mystery doesn’t mean having to attend daily Mass, but living out its meaning for our lives.)

There is no fee for the retreat but reservations are necessary. Please email Judithfleshman@yahoo.com or call 858-663-2880 to reserve your place and state it is for the Lenten Retreat on March 29. Refreshments will be served. Deadline for reservations is March 27.

Fr. Rosevear has been in the Order of Preachers for 46 years. He is part of the Western Dominican Province and has ministered in roles as pastor, prior, vocation director, parochial vicar and retreat center chaplain. He presently resides at St. Dominic’s Church in San Francisco and is Novice Master for the Dominicans in this part of the U.S. In this position he leads young men who enter the Order through their first year of formation and religious training.
