OLC was on TV!
OLC was on TV on Sunday, July 21. Our Lady of Calvary has recently been featured on an episode of Crossroads Magazine, a production of the Archdiocese of Hartford’s Office of Radio & Television. This episode highlighted three retreat centers here in Connecticut; Holy Family Passionist Retreat Center, Mercy Center and OLC. Hint: The part about retreat centers comes near the very end.
Administrator Ron Miceli and Program Director Sister Mary Ann Strain, CP were interviewed about OLC’s retreat ministry and about our HVAC renovation.
We are grateful to Fr. John Gatzak and the ORT Team for including OLC in this production.
Men’s health is a family matter.
This is why Our Lady of Calvary Retreat Duplicate is hosting Life Line Screening, the nation’s leading provider of preventive health screenings on Tuesday, June 18, 2019. The screenings provided focus on vascular disease, a leading cause of illness, death and disability among men.
Screenings are fast, painless and affordable. Three key tests check for blocked carotid arteries, an irregular heart rhythm called atrial fibrillation, and high blood pressure, which are the three leading risk factors for stroke. Nearly 800,000 strokes will occur this year, taking a life approximately every four minutes.
Other tests check for abdominal aortic aneurysms and hardening of the arteries in the legs. A bone density screening to assess osteoporosis risk is also offered and is appropriate for both men and women. Many events also offer blood tests, including cholesterol, glucose and c-reactive protein screenings, as well as take-home colon cancer early detection tests.
Screening packages start at $139. Single tests cost around $70.
For more information regarding the screenings or to schedule an appointment, call 1-888-653-6441 or go to www.lifelinescreening.com/communitycircle or text the word circle to 797979. Pre-registration is required.
