Parish Missions

Parish Missions, sometimes called parish retreats, are valuable tools in renewing our spiritual life. Oftentimes parish missions are offered during the Season of Lent. Typically a parish mission, or parish retreat, will last three or four evenings – generally a Monday through Wednesday or Thursday. Most often the priest giving the parish mission will preach at the weekend Masses prior to the mission. Many priests who speak at parish missions travel throughout the nation doing just that – so you can be sure they are good at what they do!

If your parish is offering a parish mission or retreat this Lenten season, I highly recommend you consider taking time out of your busy schedule for yourself to attend. Over the years I have attended countless parish missions and retreats, and I can assure you that you will be richly blessed by the experience.

What can you hope to gain from attending a parish mission or retreat?

So if your parish will be offering a parish mission or retreat this Lenten season, I urge you to make the time in your schedule to attend. You will not be sorry! And if your parish isn’t holding a parish mission or retreat, I’d strongly suggest you check around neighboring parishes to see if you can find one in your area. It will be time well spent.

Peace in Christ,
