Evenings of Recollection are similar to a two hour silent retreat. Its purpose is to help participants sanctify their ordinary life in and through their work, family, and recreational activities. The program is a meditation, preferably by a priest from the Prelature of Opus Dei, a talk by a layman on living the Christian virtues combined with time for spiritual reading, and an examination of conscience in front of the Blessed Sacrament. There is also the opportunity for the Sacrament of Confession. The evening closes with an optional time for fellowship, light snacks, and refreshments.
We are extremely fortunate that Father Velez, a priest of the Opus Dei Prelature, who is based in Miami Florida and supports the activities in Atlanta will be able to visit us for an Evening of Recollection for Men on Friday, 7 June at 7p in the Church (1209 Brushy Creek Road Taylors, SC 29687).
