Saturday Afternoon Retreat for Dads

What is the best thing a father can do for his children? Hint: it’s not just love their mom (although that’s a close second or third). Hint: it’s also the best thing he can do for his spouse. How do you live your faith in your home and family? How do you pass it on to your children? Learn answers at this Day for Dads.

Join Jeremy Ekeler and Fr. Eric Clark on Saturday, July 29, 2023 from 1:00 p.m. to 6:30 pm at Good Counsel Retreat House.
