Lenten Retreat

Recollection: Getting It Together

Fr. Mateo Zamora, OSB

March 5 - 7, 2021

Lent it the season when we try to get it together in terms of our spiritual lives.  We focus more on prayer, fasting, and good works.  In order to enter into the season of Lent and embrace what it calls us to be, we need to be recollected.  This retreat is about recollection:  the practices, attitudes, and priorities that allow us to “get it together” so that we can be open to the Lord’s invitation to deeper intimacy in Holy Week and Easter.

Fr. Mateo Zamora, OSB, a junior monk of Saint Meinrad Archabbey, served as a priest of the Diocese of Lexington for ten years before he entered the monastery. He currently teaches a practicum in Homiletics in our Seminary and assists in the Oblate Office. Originally from the Philippines, he helped start the Filipino ministries in both the Diocese of Lexington and the Archdiocese of Louisville.

This is an online, pre-recorded retreat. Links to the retreat will be available for two weeks after the date that the retreat is scheduled. You will be billed $50 for the cost of this retreat.
