Becoming an Ordinary Martyr: Young Adult Retreat

Note: This retreat is for young adults ages 18-30.

Come and experience our very own Bishop Daniel Mueggenborg teach on how to translate spiritual ideals into practical realities. Learn how to increase your ability to recognize and respond to the inspiration of the Holy Spirit speaking to you just as the Holy Spirit inspired Bl. Stanley Rother. This retreat will immerse you deeply into the life and faith of this “ordinary martyr” to inspire you in your own Christian discipleship.

In September 2017, Pope Francis beatified Fr. Stanley Rother as a martyr. This was a historical moment for the Church in the United States since Fr. Rother is the first US-born priest to ever be beatified and also the first US-born person to be officially recognized as a martyr. What is most surprising, and encouraging, about Fr. Rother’s life and death is that he was an ordinary person in so many ways. His life and example gives us hope in our daily pursuit of holiness.

Registration fee is $99.50 per person. Find out more here:
