Who is at the Foot of the Cross?
Presented by Rev. Walter Szczesny
Director of Vocations – Diocese of Buffalo

Full Retreat:  Fri. 7:00 p.m. – Sat. 3:00 p.m.
Saturday only: 8:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

Our Lenten journey will carry us to Good Friday – the day we remember the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross. When you come near to the cross again, what is on your mind? What is in your heart? How do you feel? If you were standing there with Mary, Mary Magdalene and John…..what would you do in response to such a sacrifice?

Reflect on these and other questions through brief presentations, personal prayer, Mass, and faith sharing.

Fr. Szczesny was ordained as a Buffalo Diocesan Priest in 1990. He served nine years as a parochial vicar and eight years as pastor of Saint George Parish in West Falls, NY. He has been on the faculty of Christ the King Seminary since 1999 as a member of the Formation Team, an instructor in liturgy and as Director of Seminarians. He is now completing his eighth year as Director of Vocations for the diocese.
