CEDAR FALLS — St. Patrick Church hosted a four-day parish retreat Nov. 4-7. The event, “A Future Full of Hope,” was structured similarly to a parish mission. Each day included time for eucharistic adoration, the opportunity for the sacrament of reconciliation, inspiring talks, food and social time. High school students provided childcare during several of the sessions for freewill donations to support youth ministry activities.
