Priest Prophet King Retreat 2024

Priest Prophet King Retreat 2024

The Retreat

Come join us for an incredible day centered on Christ present in the Eucharist.  This retreat is a guided reflection of faith including Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, Rosary, Praise & Worship, Small Group Discussion, Interactive Prayer Experiences, two workshop breakouts, lunch, Eucharistic procession, and Mass.  The entire day is designed to help you intentionally embrace Jesus Christ present in the Blessed Sacrament and in your daily life.  Workshops being presented by Fr. Darrel Kempf, Fr. Michael Hodges, and Tammy Graves.

2024 Theme

This year’s theme is Ordering the Kingdom. “For Americans and others living under democracy, the concept of a king can seem quite foreign, quaint, and curious– perhaps even silly. The United States was formed directly in opposition to rule by a king, and the past century witnessed the end of many kingdoms.”  In biblical times the King was the central and key figure in both political and religious affairs. Learn how to put God back in His true place as the King of your life.
