As we continue our monthly look at the 12 virtues of St. Joseph displayed in the St. Joseph Chapel here at the retreat and conference center, it is interesting to note why these 12 virtues from the litany are found there.
“The Year of St. Joseph is a gift to the Church to rediscover the role of St. Joseph in our lives as a model, protector and intercessor,” said Father Huemmer. “This year, we’ll be offering retreats, events, activities, and prayer opportunities centered around our patron saint!”
“We have a unique opportunity to partner with St. Elizabeth Seton in Carmel to invite others to participate in a four-day ‘Every Day Journey to Holiness Virtual Retreat for Senior Adults,’” said Father David Huemmer, chaplain and spiritual director. “
During Advent, Catholic Christians are called to spend time in expectant waiting and preparation for both the celebration of the Nativity of Jesus at Christmas and the return of Jesus at the Second Coming.
