Fr. Callan will visit our church and conduct a Lenten Retreat in Chinese on March 16-17, 2019. The main topic will be the Beatitudes based on Matthew 5:1-12. His talks will provide a detailed understanding and application of each of Beatitudes. Hopefully, the talks will lead to personal reflection and growth in our relationship with God and one another.
