God Doesn’t Give Up On Us!:
Lenten Mini-Retreat For Men


Presenter: Rev. Alan Dietzenbach



Tuesday, February 27, 6:00PM-8:30PM


For millennia God has spoken to people through many means. Sometimes those spoken to have heeded God’s voice and sometimes they’ve disregarded it. In this mini-retreat, Fr. Alan will reflect on how God’s relationship with men way back in Old Testament times can teach men today how to live faithful and faith-filled lives — if they are open to hear God’s voice. The evening will begin with supper.



Rev. Alan Dietzenbach is an Associate Pastor at the Cathedral of St. Raphael and St. Patrick's Church in Dubuque.

Offering: $25


Register & Prepay By Friday, February 23

Tuesday, November 20, 9:00am-3:00pm


David Haas will present a day-long retreat based on his newly released book, That You Might Have Life: Spiritual Practices for the Call to Holiness. “There is a stereotype that we must be depressed at Lent,” says Haas. “Lent is the Church’s springtime.
