CTK MEN’S RETREAT
FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 25 – SUNDAY FEBRUARY 27
Bethany Center, Lutz, FL
REGISTRATION OPENS JANUARY 3rd, 2022 at 12:00am
Join us for our 22nd Annual Men’s Retreat. Fr. Alex Padilla will lead a reflective weekend at the beautiful Bethany Center in Lutz, FL. More than ever, we all need to take the time to reflect on the condition of our spiritual and family life. This retreat provides a unique opportunity for men to grow in their faith and to enjoy fellowship with other Christian men. You don’t want to miss this!
|OUR RETREAT DIRECTOR:
We are blessed to have Fr. Padilla as our retreat director. Fr. Padilla is a priest of the Diocese of St. Petersburg, joined the Faculty of St. Vincent de Paul Regional Seminary in 2021 as Assistant Professor of Canon Law and member of the Formation Team. Prior to entering priestly formation, he studied for two years at the University of Central Florida in Orlando. He then entered formation at St. John Vianney College Seminary in Miami, and, upon graduation, continued formation at the Pontifical North American College in Rome. While there, he studied theology at the Pontifical Gregorian University and Canon Law at the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas (Angelicum) and the Catholic University of America. Ordained in 2016, he has served as Parochial Vicar at the Cathedral of St. Jude the Apostle in St. Petersburg and, later, at Christ the King parish in Tampa. In addition to absolutely loving being a priest, he also enjoys, among other things, reading, cinema, and soccer (especially his beloved A.S. Roma).
Throughout the weekend, we will have several presentations led by Fr. Padilla. The schedule includes time for quiet reflection, prayer, Reconciliation, Eucharistic Exposition and Adoration and fellowship. There will be two Masses during the weekend. Recognizing that we all are at different stages in our faith journeys, our retreat is designed for a diverse group of men so that all will benefit. The weekend is structured in a manner so that you may participate only to the extent you are comfortable. Registration starts at 4pm on February 25, with dinner at 6:00pm and the first conference at 7pm. The retreat finishes at 12pm on February 27.
