Annual Retreat for Deacons and Their Wives

year-of-mercy-logo_medMerciful Like The Father: Deacons as Servants and Crafters of Mercy
Saturday, April 9, 2016
St. Anthony Maronite Church
375 Island Pond Road
Springfield, MA 01118

Pope Francis wrote in Misericordiae Vultus that “the mercy of God is not an abstract idea, but a concrete reality with which he reveals his love as that of a father or a mother, moved to the very depths out of love for their child (MV, n. 6).”

God’s mercy never runs dry because it always finds people who give concrete testimony to it in everyday life.

This year’s Deacons’ Retreat will focus on the Ministry of Deacon as a servant and crafter of Divine Mercy in a world grown dull by indifference.

Retreat Facilitator: Fr. Warren J. Savage, Catholic Chaplain, Albert and Amelia Ferst Interfaith Center, Westfield State University; Lecturer, Religious Studies Department, the Elms College, Chicopee, MA; Instructor for the Diocesan Permanent Diaconate Formation Program; Member of Spiritual Directors International, Academy of Homiletics, and The Society for the Study of Christian Spirituality.

 A man named John was sent from God.
He came for testimony, to testify to the light,
so that all might believe through him.
He was not the light,
but came to testify to the light. John 1:6-8
