Time: 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm mountain (8:30 pm to 10:00 pm eastern). Call Uber Conference  at 720-735-7025   Online at uberconference.com/facingourimmortality Giving Up Secrets We live in an age of secrets. Governments, corporations, educational, medical and religious institutions are all skilled at keeping secrets both for good reasons and not so good reasons. Media definitely keeps secrets according to the agenda it pushes. But this reflects people in general. People tend to keep a lot of secrets There is a pressing need to recognize that secrets make a difference. They can determine the direction of our lives, and the manner in which we pass from this world into the next. Jesus tells us in the Gospels that everything that is hidden will be revealed. Secret activities, secret wounds, secret weaknesses, secret sins, secret fantasies, secret thoughts, secret addictions, secret jealousies, secret plans, secret ambitions, family secrets, secret judgments, secret desires, in fact a secret life, all of it will be revealed. That is unless you have taken care of any sin in your secrets, by going to Confession where …

A Life Freely Lived: An Evening Retreat With Sr. Anne Marie Walsh, SOLT.

August 12, 2019 Good evening everyone. Tonight we will go over the upcoming retreat in Iowa and spend some time talking about “A Life Freely Lived”. God Bless you. To join our call: Call Uber Conference  at 720-735-7025   Online at uberconference.com/facingourimmortality We will say a brief prayer before the spiritual exercise begins. From the perspective of eternity, there is really only one urgency:  the salvation of souls. Birthing souls into eternal life is a labor that is perhaps the most hidden, and yet, most valuable labor of all.  This is not the kind of work many people ever think of or even consciously involve themselves in. Yet when the weight of what is at stake is felt, and an eternity of either endless happiness or endless torment is understood within the depths of a soul, great hearts are moved in the likeness of Jesus’ own heart to do whatever they can to keep even one soul from being lost. A century ago, a group of men called the One-Way Missionaries, freely chose to serve that urgency by purchasing one-way …

We need to let you know there has been a change in the retreat dates for our upcoming retreat. We have moved the dates from September to the month of October.

Imagine Your Eternity

Hi from Denise. I thought I might post a little bit about some of the thoughts people shared during our most recent evening retreat with Sr. Anne Marie Walsh. You may have noticed I started naming our spiritual exercise group “evening retreats with Sr. Anne Marie”. I don’t know about you but when we are all together with Sr. Anne it feels like a mini-retreat. During our evening retreats we have a refreshing opportunity move away from ourselves and closer to God. Because our world is filled to capacity with distractions it takes enormous effort to say “no” to the subtle temptations of our society. July’s spiritual exercise was about how we feed and nurture our souls. Are we attending to activities which are “life giving”? She asks “Are we eating from the Tree of Life or from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil? Everything we do can either prepare us for salvation or make obtaining our salvation more difficult. Sr. Anne’s voice is comforting and strong, like that of what we may …

Our Next Evening Retreat: July 8th

I pray your Pentecost Sunday was just the first of many days whereby you pray for the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Come, Holy Spirit, Come. We will bring to you our next group, via conference call, on July 8, 2019. More to come! Please pray for the repose of the soul of Greg Walsh, Sr. Anne Marie’s brother. He passed away very recently. Mary, Mother of God, pray for us. God Bless you!

Join us May 20th for an Evening Retreat about “Our Lady of Conquering Love”

In these times of uncertainty we need and crave what can be relied upon. If you are sick, or caring for one who is ill, stability can seem fleeting and elusive. The love given to us from our Blessed Mother is constant, stronger than we can imagine with our human minds and meant to bring us to her son, our Lord Jesus. Please take a moment to gift to yourself an evening retreat where we will pray and join in spiritual exercises with Sr. Anne Marie Walsh, SOLT. Please share this opportunity with anyone who could benefit from a gentle reminder about Our Lady of Conquering Love.

Blessed Lent and Group Reminder

Peace and Blessed Lent to you. I pray that you are able to begin your Lenten season with prayerful thought and preparation. Lent is such a transformational time of year, a time to cleanse us of what holds us back from fully uniting ourselves with Jesus. Below is a link to the Pope’s Lenten Holy Mass. I also wanted to remind you that our next spiritual exercise group is this coming Monday, March 11, 2019 at 6:30 pm. Please look to this blog for the upcoming notes if you cannot attend the meeting at Our Lady of Lourdes Parish. You will be able to join us from your phone or computer. May the Lord Bless you abundantly!

Reminder for upcoming group February 11, 2019

Please mark your calendar for our upcoming monthly spiritual exercise group with Sr. Anne Marie Walsh, SOLT.  Her presentation will be on angels. This is a wonderful opportunity to allow the Holy Spirit to enter your heart and help you to gain a better understanding of God’s plan in your life.  I am really looking forward to this presentation and prayer session. To learn more about our spiritual exercise group, please go to our January presentation by clicking here. What I am loving about our precious family is that we are growing together, in communion with Christ.  Each of us is in a different circumstance, and even though we are all together as a group, we encounter the Holy Spirit individually, as intended by God, for that moment. God Bless you all, Denise
