IHM: Men’s Retreat With Fr. Simon Carian Sept. 20-21

on September 8, 2019 - 9:18am

IHM News:

Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church is hosting a retreat for men, 6-8:30 p.m. Friday Sept. 20 and 7:30 a.m. to noon Saturday Sept. 21 in the parish hall at 3700 Canyon Road.

Father Simon Carian will present talks at the retreat. He is a young, energetic priest of the Archdiocese of Santa Fe.

He was ordained in 2013 after completing seminary formation in Rome and is serving as Parochial Vicar at Estancia Valley Parish in Moriarty, while completing his doctoral dissertation on St. Augustine.

Previously, he has served at the Aquinas Newman Center at UNM, and Sacred Heart in Clovis.

One of his favorite quotes is by St. John Vianney: “The priest is not a priest for himself; he does not give himself absolution; he does not administer the sacraments to himself. He is not for himself; he is for you.”

Tickets for the retreat are $20 for adult men and free for boys age 13-17, and available in the main office at IHM.
