Knights of Columbus of Iowa Retreat

A Modern Man’s Journey to His Soul

At a time when the pillars of society around us are shaking; Catholic men must look again for a deeper sense of what it means to be a man of faith. Being men we look at the world through a man’s eyes. This perception colors how we think, how we feel, how we make sense out of the world around ourselves and how we relate to others and even how we relate to our creator.

During this retreat we will:

* Discuss how the life, death and resurrection of Christ impacts our humanity and our manhood.

* Explore how faith is a dynamic gift that grows and changes as we grow and change.

* Experience the invitation to the fullness of life in Christ.

* Embark on a life journey of transformation through grace.

* Envision our own deepest humanity through the eyes of Jesus’ humanity.

Through quiet reflection, prayer, Scripture, and Eucharist we will open our lives to the Spirit of God who created us to be men of faith, strength, wisdom and love.

Theme:  The woman behind the stories.

Sometimes the power of Mary is lost in storybook images and overly familiar piety.  Together we will break open the stories of Mary found in Scripture to discover the real woman and the impact she can have in our lives if we truly get to know her story.

 

Reflections will include:

“Ancestory.com” The women in the genealogy of Jesus.

The girl who talked to an angel.

The compelling need to share Good News.

A homeless young family.

Strangers in a foreign land.

Son what have you done.

Current projects will include: cleaning carpets, washing windows, flower bed maintenance, tree trimming, small painting projects, some minor repair projects, sealing driveway and parking area cracks, weed eating and sidewalk edging.  I am also looking into removing the wood chips from around the Stations of the Cross and replacing the weed barrier and using washed river rock to slow down weed growth.  I am also looking at planting shrubs as a visual barrier for our new neighbors driveway.

 

I hope you can help this year with the 11th Annual DREAM Project.  Please keep us in your prayers as you are in ours.

 

God Bless,
