The parishes of St. John in Osgood, Immaculate Conception in Millhousen and St. Maurice in Napoleon will co-host a three day mission led by Fr. Jim Farrell. The theme of the mission will be “Mercy: God’s Gift.” Fr. Farrell is currently pastor of Pius X Parish in Indianapolis and is also Director of Our Lady of Fatima Retreat House in Indianapolis. The retreat schedule and topics will be Sunday Feb. 14 at St. John’s – “Encountering God’s Mercy in the Scriptures;” Monday Feb. 15 will be at Immaculate Conception – “Experiencing God’s Mercy in the Sacraments;” and Tuesday Feb. 16 at St. Maurice – “Carrying God’s Mercy Forward- Giving What We Have Received.” All talks will begin at 7:00 PM and will be followed by opportunities for Confession and Anointing of the Sick. Refreshments and opportunities for fellowship will also be available in the parish halls. Please come, bring a friend and join us for this perfect beginning to Lent.
