Advent Mission Themes
  • The Incarnation:
    a three day dramatized walk through the first 700 years of Christianity as the Church struggles to define and understand the mystery of the incarnation and at the same time debunking the various heresies. 

    The third session ends with a powerful synthesis of meaning and depth of the incarnation for our own salvation and the participants leave with a real heart understanding of the majesty of the incarnation and the majesty of our salvation.

  • Choosing the Road Less Travelled:
    a three day journey to a closer relationship with Christ. 

    • Day 1: Kenton's inspirational conversion story and the difficult journey it became.​

    • Day 2: Life is a Choice :Using St. Thomas Moore as the model, Kenton walks through the choices we have of living a life of security or one of difficulty.  Do we walk the road less travelled? Or are we on the main highway of materialism? What are the risks? Is the journey worth it?  Is the road less travelled for everyone?

    • Day 3: Deepening Knowledge and Perfecting Charity - strategies to move a step closer to following the desires God has placed on your heart and the self-mastery to do it.

Lent Mission Themes
  • The Passion:
    a three day journey with St. Thomas Aquinas deepening our understanding of the thoroughness of Christ's suffering, His descent into hell, and our call to follow in His footsteps. 

  • The Call to Perfection:
    a three day journey to our vocation of holiness. 

    • Day 1: What is love? What is charity?  Can we grow in charity?

    • Day 2: Where am I on the journey? Purgative way, illuminative way, or unitive way?

    • Day 3: Perfecting charity through the evangelical councils: how do we grow in charity? does charity actually increase in us? can we lose charity? can we perfect our charity?
