2021 Diocesan Lenten Retreat (4/3/2021)

The 2021 Diocesan Lenten Retreat took part on Saturday April 3, 2021. It was a "hybrid event" with over 200 Diocesan adults and teens, along with Metropolitan Gregory and several Diocesan priests taking part via Zoom from their homes or at a group viewing at their respective parish.

Fr. Jonathan Bannon gave an excellent presentation on the Theme of "Nepsis- Watchfulnness: Being Attentive in a Distracted Age."

The many favorable comments and the active participation in the Question and Answer forum after the presentation, were indicators that the afternoon spiritual gathering of so many in the Diocese was a great blessing to all who took time to participate.
