Retreat and Celebration Day, Our Lady of the Adirondacks House of Prayer, 7270 Star Road, Ellenburg Center, Saturday, August 24, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Bishop Terry LaValley will preside at Mass and Fr. Jack Downs will present a talk treating Mary as an example of discipleship within the reach of us all. A disciple is one who hears the word of God and acts on what they hear. The Scriptures show us five instances where Mary acted as a perfect disciple of Jesus. We will share some passages from the Gospel of Luke and John and early passages of Acts of the Apostles. Adoration and Mass will follow the talk. Lunch provided. Donations appreciated and necessary for us to continue to another birthday celebration of our Bethlehem House. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 518-594-3253 before Aug. 15.
