We are starting our monthly Facing Our Immortality Cancer Ministry Support Groups on August 13, 2018.
They will occur each month, on the second Monday of the month, for now. We have been doing quite a bit of planning to ensure that this is a safe and loving environment for people who have been affected by cancer. We are open to patients, survivors, caregivers, spouses and surviving spouses. Sr. Anne Marie has created a lovely workbook that walks us through prayer and spiritual exercise that brings us closer to God. It is in facing our immortality that we release ourselves of our fears.
Location: Our Lady Of Lourdes Classic School 6th grade classroom, 2256 S. Logan St. –Denver, CO 80210
Time: 6:30 pm for 60-90 minutes. Please call Denise to RSVP at 206-779-0691

Please join our Men’s Cancer Retreat October 5-7, 2018 at Mother Cabrini Shrine.
“Come away by yourselves to a secluded place and rest a little while…” Mk. 6:31. Jesus spoke these words to his disciples and He speaks these words into the lives of those, who in the midst of serving what can seem like overwhelming needs, have no time for their own rest, meals, quiet, prayer. Jesus promises to restore our strength, and renew us in His love, if we come to Him. “Come to Me all you who labor and I will give you rest.”
The Facing Our Immortality Men’s Cancer Retreat, Oct 5-7, 2018, is designed especially for men with cancer, those who are cancer survivors, caregivers and surviving spouses. If you are feeling the need for spiritual strengthening and refreshment, please see below:
This is a special time for men to gather and be in communion with one another around the effects of cancer. The retreat will focus on suffering (specific to cancer), your relationship with the Lord and understanding God’s plan in the midst of suffering. You will gain a better understanding of the relationship between you, our Blessed Mother and Jesus in seeking spiritual relief from this experience. We will offer the sacraments of reconciliation, anointing of the sick and mass, as well as ongoing prayer to enrich your ability to listen to the Holy Spirit. It is a time to ask God questions and find a way back to peace in the midst your circumstances.
