Father Donald Blanchard: Spirituality Retreat
Join us for a women's silent retreat focused on Catholic Spirituality lead by Father Donald Blanchard March 28-30, 2014. As Christians, we live in, through, and with the power of the same Spirit as Jesus Christ. "But whoever is joined to the Lord becomes one spirit with him" (1 Cor 6:17). For the Christian, then, "spiritual" refers to the whole of our existence. The Spirit gives different gifts for the building up of the community in love and is the bond of union holding all together in Christ (1 Cor 12:13). The Holy Spirit makes us holy, calling each of us to be a saint, a holy person filled with the Spirit of Christ. We are so filled with this Spirit that Paul can say, "It is no longer I who live, but it is Christ who lives in me" (Gal 2:20). Join us in finding the Christ in you.
Rev. Donald Blanchard is a parish priest in the Diocese of Baton Rouge and a beloved retreat presenter at the Metairie Cenacle and various other parishes and retreat programs. He also served in the Office of Religious Education, as Vocation Director and Director of Seminarians.
