Spiritual Retreat for Knights

Chelsea – Saturday, March 5th was a special day for twenty-three members of the Cardinal O’Hara Assembly of the Knights of Columbus, as they chose St. Louis Center as the location of their Third Annual Spiritual Retreat. The Retreat lasted a half-day, and was directed by Fr. Joseph Rinaldo, SdC., who also serves as the “Faithful Friar” of the Assembly. When Fr. Joseph accepted the position three years ago, it became his goal to help the men of this Assembly to increase their spirituality, and offered to do a Lenten Retreat on a yearly basis. This year’s retreat included talks on the Spiritual and Corporal Works of Mercy, and included Adoration, Rosary, Reconciliation, and Mass. According to Doug Koepsell, Grand Knight of the Dexter Council, “The Lenten retreat left an indelible impression on me. In addition to experiencing a glimpse of life at the Center, the teachings of Fr. Joe Rinaldo were without comparison. We are so fortunate to have such a tireless servant of Christ as our Faithful Friar.”
