THANKS TO ALL WHO PARTICIPATED IN THE LENTEN RETREAT AT ST. JUDE’S RANCH, BOULDER CITY, SATURDAY, MARCH 10, 9:00-5:00 pm
Parishioner Kathy Ruud did a superb job of conducting the retreat with insightful and thoughtful lessons.  The day began with a delicious breakfast hosted by Janie Brown and Angie Thompson (a delightful lunch was also provided by them!) followed by Morning Prayer; lessons by Kathy Ruud on the theme of Lament as a process and an invitation to building a deeper relationship with Our Lord, with the discovery of healing and hope that inevitably follow.  The day also offered times for silent contemplation in a beautiful outdoor setting at St. Jude’s, and concluded with a Mass in the beautiful chapel at St. Jude’s. Thank you – Kathy, Janie, Angie and others who helped make this year’s Lenten retreat a spiritually rewarding experience! !! !
