ASCENT is a parish-wide retreat designed to invigorate our ministries and to give us all a boost in our spiritual life.
Are you involved in a ministry or group here at HNOJ? Are you one of our volunteers, whether frequent or simply on occasion? Are you a parishioner looking to increase your involvement? Does your faith life just need a boost? Or are you just curious about how HNOJ is carrying out our mission? If so, this retreat is for you!
Who: All are welcome, especially those who lead and those who support our ministries
What: A unique opportunity to explore missionary discipleship, foster personal spiritual growth, connect with other HNOJ leaders, music, Mass, prayer and more!
When: Friday, Sept. 27, 7-9 p.m. + Social Hour 9-10 pm.
Saturday, Sept. 28, 8 a.m. -12:30 p.m. Mass at 8 am with simple breakfast to follow.
Where: HNOJ Campus
ASCENT is designed to help us each find our “why”: Why are we motivated to follow Jesus, and why do we wish to bring others along with us? This unique retreat will bring us together, to connect and build relationships, and to foster growth as a whole.
Our large parish is bustling with activity. We have many ministries, commissions, events, and volunteers. All of our combined efforts achieve the work of the parish, reaching one another and furthering our commitment to Christ. But do we know how our goals align with the mission of HNOJ? Have you ever wondered what other ministries are doing and if there is a chance to join efforts?
This retreat includes a Friday evening session and a Saturday morning session with breakfast provided. It will begin with a talk and Eucharistic Adoration 7-9 p.m. Friday (and Parish Social Hour 9-10 p.m.) and then on Saturday we will gather again for Mass at 8 am and conclude by 12:30 p.m. There is no cost to register; simply sign up here by Tuesday, Sept. 24.
