Fathers Day Weekend

          Mass 

          All Night Eucharistic Vigil 

     Study

          7 Sacraments of the Catholic Church

          And what it means to LIVE the

          Sacramental life of the Church 

     Act 

         Fellowship with other Men 

         Establish a plan for more closely 

         living the sacramental life of the 

         Church.

 

SPECIAL Location 

This Men on the Mountain Retreat will be taking place on the NEW Santiago ranch properties.  Located behind the gates of Black Star  Canyon Park - with breathtaking vistas, we’ll be dining Chuck wagon style, camping under canvas or sleeping rough under the stars.  

 

Special Additional Trail Hike 

For those who want to hike to the hermitage by way of the big cross - we’ll offer a trail guided hike beginning at noon Friday.  Arrive at the retreat center no later than 11:00am to sign in and transport to Santiago Ranch.  It’s a medium degree level of difficulty.
