About the Event
We are thrilled to be joined by speaker and author, Cathy Garcia-Prats.
Joe and Cathy Garcia-Prats have been married for 50 years and are the proud parents of 10 sons, 7 daughters-in-law, and 22 grandchildren. Joe is a practicing neonatologist and Cathy is a former first grade teacher and author of a number of books including Good Families Don’t Just Happen: What we learned from raising our ten sons and how it can work for you. Their sons, now ranging in age from 30 to 48, are well-educated, unique individuals who show love and respect for one another, their parents and others. You can read more about the Garcia-Prats family.
The theme for our Lenten Retreat is New Wine. May our hearts and minds be docile to the prompts of the Holy Spirit to prepare for His movements and reflections.
"Have you become a new creation? Have you allowed your former self to die so that the new person can rise again? What does it mean to become a new creation in Christ so that the new wine of grace can be poured into your life?
Becoming a new creation in Christ means that we live on a whole new level and no longer cling to our former ways. It means that God does powerful things in our lives far beyond anything we could ever do by ourselves. It means we have become a new and fit 'wineskin' for God to be poured into. And it means that this new 'wine' is the Holy Spirit taking hold of and possessing our lives." ("New Wine into New Wineskins", Catholic Daily Reflection)
We will look at the process of making New Wine and how it pertains to our lives and the Eucharist.
