“The Light of Faith”
A Parish Retreat with Fr. Ben Kiely
Wednesday, Sep. 29 through Friday, Oct. 1
7:00-8:00pm in Upper Church
Father Ben Kiely, who spoke in our parish in 2017 about his work helping Persecuted Christians, will be giving a three night retreat for the OLR parish. Entitled “The Light of Faith”, it’s an exploration of what Faith actually is in these tough times. In both the world and the Church, we need our faith strengthened and nourished. Each talk will last less than one hour – start your fall season with a real understanding of your Catholic Faith!
Father Benedict Kiely is a Catholic priest, incardinated in the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham. Born in London, and ordained in Canterbury, England in 1994, Father Ben has spent most of his priestly ministry in the United States. In the summer of 2014, Father Ben perceived a call to devote his entire priestly ministry to aid and advocacy for persecuted Christians, especially in the Middle East. Founding Nasarean.org, a 501(c)3 charity based in Stowe, Vermont and with the permission and support of his Ordinary, Father Ben divides his time between the US, UK and the Middle East, speaking, preaching and writing, trying to focus attention on the plight of persecuted Christians around the world. He has visited war-torn Iraq on multiple occasions since 2015, and has visited Syria and Lebanon where Nasarean is now supporting a number of family businesses.
