Spiritual Impact Boot Camp Retreat

March 26-28th in Aberdeen, SD. 

Fr. Scott Traynor will be partnering with FOCUS in leading a retreat for the adults of our diocese looking to grow in their relationship with God and be equipped to help others to do the same. 

The retreat has three points of focus-
God’s Love for us
God’s power to heal
The gifts of the Holy Spirit.
Each point of focus is built around an excellent presentation and extended time of prayer and Adoration.  It is a very effective and enjoyable retreat!

Catholic Conversations – Mastering Myself: The Power of the Virtue of Moderation

April 14th | 7 pm – 9 pm | St. Leo, Tyndall
We all struggle with reigning in our instincts, impulses and desires. In fact, many of our problems in life and society today come from our inability to master ourselves. Perhaps more than ever we need to both understand and live the virtue of self-mastery, the virtue of moderation. Join Dr. Chris Burgwald as he explains the virtue of moderation and offers some keys to growing in it.
