Wisconsin mini Holy Family Fest Doubles in Size!

On February 25, thirty-one families (197 participants) gathered in Madison, WI, at Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish for the second annual mini Holy Family Fest. Bishop Donald J. Hying celebrated the Mass (pictured below). During Eucharistic Adoration, AFC Chaplain Fr. Kevin Barrett led the Family Consecration prayer to the Holy Family. He also encouraged families to use the 7-Day Preparation for Family Consecration booklet to renew their consecration. A big thanks to the many volunteers who helped make this event happen!

Raising the Roof!

We just removed the drop ceiling in our retreat center dining room, along with the unsightly support columns. Now, we're putting the finishing touches on the newly installed ceiling joists. At your next retreat, you'll notice that the dining room feels more open and inviting.

Consider gifting a time-saving tool or supplies to help us prepare for upcoming retreats. From $5.99 to $5,599.99, there are lots of options.
