Greetings from Lucia Ferrara, Hospitality Coordinator for Precious Blood Renewal Center. I plan to keep you informed about the developments here through this monthly newsletter.
As we begin our journey into autumn we focus on our hope to fill the world with peace and love. This means we need to share the spirituality of the Blood of Christ calling us to reconcile with one another. In commemoration of “The Year if Mercy,” the Renewal Center dedicated our new Reconciliation Labyrinth in August. The celebration was well received by the entire diocese and community.
Our welcoming space has brought many groups here for retreats, such as the Missouri Alternatives to the Death Penalty, who met here in late August. In early September we hosted St. Charles 8th grade retreat for the entire day, ending with Mass in the Chapel. Avila University’s First Year Youth Leadership Retreat was held at the Renewal Center the weekend of September 9th-10th. The participants utilized the Reconciliation Labyrinth as a team building/bonding activity involving time with God and prayer. Other community bonding activities included simulation games about relationships with family, friends and God.
The Renewal Center will be very busy this October. The second Men’s Cursillo Group of the year held their retreat here the first weekend of the month. The Cursillo movement stresses personal spiritual development and then taking what they have learned back into the world when finished. Way of Christ Fellowship Church from Holden, Missouri will be hosting their Women’s Retreat for the second year in a row. Also, Annunciation Church in Kearney, MO is having their annual youth retreat later this month.
Our desire is to provide all people a place where rest, renewal and restoration may occur. I look forward to updating you monthly about all the exciting things happening. We are welcoming many guests, requiring reservations for everyone. Contact me to bring a group or for your personal stay. So please find yourself at Precious Blood Renewal Center by making a reservation with me, Lucia Ferrrara, the Hospitality Coordinator for the Precious Blood Renewal Center, Liberty MO. Please call 816-210-0451 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In Peace & Love,
