On Saturday we celebrated the feast of St. Athanasius. He famously said that “the Son of God became man so that we might become God”.

5:00 – Be Not Troubled: A Spiritual Retreat with Fr. Caussade
For more than 250 years, Fr. Jean-Pierre de Caussade’s Abandonment to Divine Providence has inspired those plagued with doubt, anxiety, and fear. Fr. Jeffrey Kirby has firsthand experience with Fr. de Caussade’s spiritual classic and he joins us with his own meditations that can help you let go of what you can’t control and discover a place of deep serenity in God.
