All Saints Retreat Day

What does All Saints Day mean to you? Celebrate the spiritual meaning of All Saints Day with us at OLC! It’s the day we honor all the saints and remember their remarkable lives! We’ll explore the stories of some female American saints, including St. Kateri Tekakwitha, the first Native American canonized by the Catholic Church, and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, daughter, wife, mother, convert, and founder of a Congregation of religious women. St. Marianne Cope, who worked with Saint Damian of Molokai caring for lepers, and St. Katharine Drexel, foundress of the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament, whose mission was to assist Native and African Americans in the West and Southwest United States.
This day will include a retreat conference, an opportunity for Confession, All Saints Day Mass, and lunch.
