Retreat for Men

The retreat for men at Our Lady of Calvary will be presented by Fr. Warren Savage. 

The theme of the retreat is Go in Peace, Glorifying the Lord with your life!

“God’s word, listened to and celebrated, above all in the Eucharist, nourishes and inwardly strengthens Christians, enabling them to offer an authentic witness to the Gospel in daily life (EG, n. 174).” These words are taken from Pope Francis’ Apostolic Exhortation, Evangelii Gaudium, The Joy of the Gospel, remind Christians of their baptismal identity to live a life in accordance with the gospel proclaimed by the crucified and risen Lord. The weekend retreat is a graced time for participants to reflect on the Word of God to discern what it means to be sent forth “in peace, glorifying the Lord by your life.”

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.
