Good Shepherd, Newport
Good Shepherd Church will hold a parish retreat Saturday, Feb. 23. David Russell, a magician and author of Magi Theology and Bigger and Better and the producer of a series of CD’s, will conduct the day. He plans to show that just as the illusions of magic prevent us from seeing what the magician is actually doing, so too can the many illusions of daily life distract us from seeing and hearing what God is doing. The retreat will begin with Mass at 11 a.m. and end at 3:30 p.m.
