Saturday, March 19, 10:00 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.

Shrine of St. Anthony, 12290 Folly Quarter Rd., Ellicott City, MD 21042

Join us on Saturday, March 19, for an off-campus Lenten retreat at the beautiful property of the Shrine of St. Anthony, located in Ellicott City, Maryland (west of Baltimore), about 50 minutes driving distance from the Catholic University campus.

The theme of our Lenten retreat is Arise and Go to the Father. The goal of our life's pilgrimage is a passing on to the Father's house. This pilgrimage involves an ongoing conversion of heart, until we come home to the heart of God the Father. Jesus is the way back to the Father of mercies, who awaits and assists all His children.

The retreat starts at 10:00 a.m. and concludes at 2:30 p.m. The retreat is offered at no cost! Fr. Louis and Sr. Ruth of the Office of Campus Ministry will be leading the retreat.
