St Francis deSales said, "Great occasions for serving God come seldom, but little ones surround us daily." Take the opportunity to notice the opportunities to serve God in the Durham community with the Holy Infant DeSales Lenten Retreat.

The DeSales Lenten Service Retreat is the perfect opportunity to step back from everyday life, reflect, pray and serve people in need. The retreat will be rooted in the core teaching of St. Francis de Sales and include direct service, facilitated reflection, and prayer. Most events will take place Thursday and Friday evening and all day Saturday. Participants will work with Families Moving Forward to complete a service opportunity directly benefiting families in need in and around Durham. Families Moving Forward is a non-profit located in downtown Durham that assists families facing homelessness. We'll be planning a birthday party, doing some landscaping and assembling donated bunk beds that will arrive at FMF that week . 

On Thursday, March 30 we'll meet from 7pm to 8:30pm at Holy Infant.

On Friday, March 31 we'll meet from 7pm to 8:30pm, starting at Holy Infant and spending a good deal of time at Families Moving Forward.

Saturday, April 1 we'll meet from 9am to 5pm. We'll start at Holy Infant, spend the bulk of the day at Families Moving Forward, and finish up at Holy Infant.

Lunch will be provided on Saturday.

Retreat fee is $30, with any leftover funds being donated to Families Moving Forward.

Donations and a signed Medical Release form are due in the parish office by March 20, 2017.
