Begin the New Year on a Spiritual path – Pathways to Prayer

February 3-5 Men’s Weekend Retreat
Franciscan Retreats and Spirituality Center, Prior Lake

2017 Theme – Find the Missing Peace – Pathways to Prayer

Men, set the tone for your year ahead while reflecting on the year past in a space designed precisely for prayer, contemplation, reflection and growth of faith. Be among the first to experience our new theme for 2017 –
Find the Missing Peace -Pathways to Prayer

Experience four new thought provoking retreat conferences, the peaceful Chapel setting, free time to brush up on your priorities and Chef Judy’s home cooking.

Here’s a comment from a retreatant who just experienced our new theme:
Everything was restful, peaceful, and invigorating – a great way to recharge for a new year. The staff and talks were wonderful.

Besides the retreat conferences, prayer experiences and liturgies, enjoy open time for confession, rest, or ‘one on one’ spiritual direction. Retreats begin with the Welcome and Orientation at 7:30 p.m. but retreatants may arrive as early as 3:30 p.m. A light supper will be served at 5:30 p.m. The Retreat concludes with a Brunch or Lunch on Sunday.

To register, call the retreat center at 952-447-2182 or register online at franciscanretreats.net/register

Blessed Trinity Needs Some Help





Blessed Trinity Catholic School Needs A Few Good Volunteers!

​We need your help in finding a few good volunteers to help us serve hot lunch to our students. This one hour activity is a great way to see our wonderful community in action. Our students absolutely love seeing their parents, parishioners and friends of Blessed Trinity throughout their school day. And, you get to see how a cheerful smile, a friendly hello or a simple “You’re welcome” makes a big impact on their day.
No previous school lunch experience necessary! Make a difference in our community! See how fantastic working with our students is!
Please contact Kori Marshall, Volunteer Coordinator at 612-767-2192 or marshallk@btcsmn.org for more information and to sign up.
