You are invited to what will be a grace-filled event in Jesus’ name: a Catholic retreat given by EWTN’s Fr. Mark Mary Christina and Susan Conroy on finding the Lord’s joy, peace, and love in today’s chaotic world. The retreat will offer tools for coping with chaos today and tomorrow.

The location is often called “God’s Country” because of the lovely rolling hills and views of Mt. Katahdin. A beautiful spot for a day of reflection. St. Benedict’s Church has been a continuously active worship site for over 175 years.

The parishioners at St. Benedict’s are overjoyed to be hosting such wonderfully faith-filled, and nationally-recognized, speakers. The retreat is open to all and we truly hope you’ll be there. The day will start at 9 A.M. and end after a Q&A session that starts at 7 P.M. Meals are included and donations accepted to help with expenses. Please call or email to reserve a spot so we have enough meals planned. Thank you.
