Ora Et Labora Prayer & Work
Open to all young adults ages 18-35, this will be a weekend of faith, fun, and fellowship at the beautiful Diakonia Retreat Center. You will be able to encounter God through the Sacraments, in prayer, in nature, and through other young adults as we share our journey of faith. We welcome Fr. Simon Herrman, OSB, as he teaches us about the prayer, work, and lifestyle of Benedictine spirituality and guides us in reflections on how God is at work in the rhythms of young adulthood, too.
We would love to see you there, and don't forget to invite a friend!
