Saturday, April 25, 2020

9:00 am –12:00 pm

Doors open at 8:30am. We do not assign seats so arrive early.

Guest Speaker: KATHLEEN KEEFE                                                   

Kathleen Keefe has been in the teaching and healing ministry since 1987. Her career as an inner-city teacher, therapist, and addictions counselor, as well as mother of a large family, afforded her a level of expertise in addressing problems and practical solutions to the crisis in the family. She is the author of five books on intercessory prayer, forgiveness, and healing gleaned over more than three decades of apostolic work in the Church.
Kathleen is the President and founder of Peace Through Divine Mercy, a 501.(c)(3) charity for priestly and family renewal in the NY Archdiocese and The Eucharistic Institute, which will launch in 2020. She is a member of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre since 1996 and a graduate of Fordham University and the City College of NY.
Her recent book, Retreat from the World is the moving story of how the physical healing of her son touched the heart of a priest and healed his spirit. The book identifies the common blocks to healing and the importance of listening in silence to the wisdom of the Holy Spirit.

We do not assign seats so arrive early to check in at the Reservation Table and find seat(s) before the program begins.
