Vocations - Holy Week Discernment Retreat

Join the friars from the Capuchin Province of St. Conrad for Holy Week. The brothers are inviting young men interested in pursuing a vocation to the Capuchin Order to spend the solemn Easter Triduum at the mountain shrine of St. Francis Xavier Cabrini in Golden, CO.

The retreat, scheduled for March 19 - 23, 2008, will be given by Fr. John Lager, O.F.M.Cap., director of vocations for the St. Conrad Province. In addition to prayer, the Divine Office, and holy Mass, Fr. John will give introductions to the history of the Capuchin Order, the spirituality of the Capuchin Reform, and will bring the retreatants to various Capuchin ministries and friaries in the Denver area.

Also included for retreatants, will be the opportunity to assist as an altar server for the Easter Triduum, reflections on the seven last words of Christ, and of course the beautiful Stations of the Cross that wind up the mountain at Cabrini Shrine.

If you would like to spend a very special and prayerful holy week learning more about the Capuchin friars and discerning a possible vocation, please contact Fr. John Lager, O.F.M.Cap.

Pax et Bonum!
