A good men’s retreat coming up at St. Mark in Plano! January 26, 2011

Posted by Tantumblogo in awesomeness, Basics, Dallas Diocese, General Catholic, North Deanery, Society.

Well, shuck my corn.  Here I’ve been complaining about the Sr. Marie Schwan dealie coming shortly at St. Mark, and I find out today there’s going to be a good men’s conference held there a few weeks later.  On March 12-13 February 12-13, the St. Peter chapter of the Brotherhood of the Iron Will, or Kepha, will be hosting a men’s retreat at St. Mark in Plano. The retreat will start on Saturday, February 12th at 8:00 am and end on Sunday, February 13th after the 10:30 am Mass is over. 

Activities on the retreat will include apologetics talks, dodge ball, Saints reports, service projects, brotherhood, 2AM Yawns for Christ, prayers and more. 

Special guest Fr. Clifford Smith, Pastor of St. Mark Catholic Church, will speak on apologetics and also be available for confession

What is Kepha?  Well, it’s a men’s group inspired by Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati and St. John Bosco who seek to live a dynamic, orthodox Catholic faith and focus on apologetics, brotherhood, charity, mortification, and prayer.  Although primarily oriented towards fathers and sons, all men are welcome.  Sounds pretty intriguing to me!   I may try to attend, at least on Saturday (but, must check with my wife first, ‘course!).

Thanks for the promo. The actual dates for the Kepha retreat are February 12-13, 2011, not March. I had the wrong dates listed on the website.

Those are some really great guys, I hear. Wonder if Stan (as in Stan and Cindy) is still involved in KEPHA. They were home schoolers with TEACH back in the day. Colleen would remember them.

Oh, and please come join us at the Patrick Madrid dinner at St. Ann’s next month. I sent your wife the info.
