Welcome There is More to Life

What is Welcome?

Welcome (CRHP 2.0) is an incredible two-day experience for Catholic men and women of Our Lady of the Lake parish, 18 years and older, that will help you:

  • Discover what’s missing in your life and what to do about it.
  • Find clarity and purpose by reflecting on some of life’s biggest questions:
    Who am I? What am I here for? What matters most?
  • Form meaningful relationships with people at our parish who will journey with you.
  • Get a fresh perspective. Life is demanding and draining. Take a break from the everyday to recharge, experience life with newfound energy, and become a better-version-of-yourself.

What happens during Welcome?

The weekend begins on Saturday morning and concludes Sunday afternoon. Lunch and dinner are provided on Saturday and lunch is provided on Sunday for those attending in person. Due to public safety concerns, there is no overnight requirement or accommodations at this time.  

Personal witnesses from members of the parish, small group reflection, prayer, and participation in the sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist will help you make sense of life, help you develop lasting friendships with other parishioners, and fill you with newfound energy and purpose.
