Weekly Rosary and Mass
The Rosary is prayed at 7:35 a.m. followed by Holy Mass at 8:00 a.m. After a short Bible study led by Fr. Pedro Escribano of Sauk City's Divine Mercy Parish, we enjoy coffee and treats. Please join us in this wonderful fellowship.
NOTE: Beginning the week of Wednesday, September 6, 2017, the weekly Rosary and Mass will change to Wednesdays instead of Tuesdays. Times will remain the same.
100th Anniversary of Fatima
November 27, 2016 - November 26, 2017
Pope Francis has granted a plenary indulgence opportunity throughout the Fatima Anniversary Year. There are three ways of obtaining the indulgence. Go on pilgrimage to the Fatima Shrine in Portugal; pray before any statue of Our Lady of Fatima; or those with mobility issues can spiritually unite themselves to Our Lady. To obtain the plenary indulgence, the faithful must also fulfill the ordinary conditions: Go to confession and Communion, be interiorly detached from sin, and pray for the intentions of the Holy Father.
Visit our grounds to participate in a celebration in honor of Our Lady and pray in front of a statue of Our Lady of Fatima. Here at Durward's Glen Retreat Center:
• You will find a Fatima Statue from Portugal situated in our Immaculate Conception Chapel, starting February 4, 2017. Spend time in prayer with Our Lady.
• Pray the Rosary on Tuesday mornings at 7:35 a.m. in the Immaculate Conception Chapel. Holy Mass is at 8:00 a.m. (NOTE: Beginning the week of Wednesday, September 6, 2017, the weekly Rosary and Mass will change to Wednesdays instead of Tuesdays. Times will remain the same.)
• On the days of the apparitions, the 13th of each month, between May and October 2017 at 6:30 p.m., there will be a program and rosary at the Mary, Mother of God Shrine. A Fatima Statue will be situated at the Shrine on these dates.
Those seeking an indulgence must also pray an Our Father, recite the Creed and invoke Our Lady of Fatima.
