Our Lady of Calvary Retreat Center's theme this year, Make Me an Instrument of Your Peace, is powerful and timely. Peacemaking is not an optional commitment. It is a requirement of our faith. Time and again, Jesus calls us to be peacemakers. Faith intensifies our desire to address the questions of our times, precisely, in the light of the Gospel: What is peace? What does it mean to be a peacemaker? What is the Christian response to violence? Retreatants will explore how they can place themselves in the center of the storm and be instrument sf peace. The retreat will begin at 7 p.m. Friday and extend until noon Sunday. It will conclude with Mass followed by brunch. Families and friends may join retreatants for Mass and brunch. The cost is $250.
