Parish nurses and those who visit hospitals, nursing homes, retirement communities, and those who bring Holy Communion and visit the lonely and home bound will benefit from this opportunity to come away, reflect and pray with Fr. Ray Chase as the retreat leader. The cost is $25/person. Please contact Rosanne Deludos at 410-547-5405 or email email@example.com to register.
