Sometimes we need some time away from the distractions in order to focus on ourselves and on our faith. At St. Hilary, we have different opportunities throughout the year to take some much needed time to focus and reconnect with God.
Learning how you can strengthen the connection between faith, work and your daily life.
Fr. Norm Douglas presents a dynamic vision that focuses on ways to affirm, equip, and support Catholic men and women in their daily life mission of being the Church in their world of family, workplace and community. Fr. Norm makes an annual Thursday evening presentation in mid-October open to both parishioners and guests and active or inactive believers. A great Evangelization opportunity.
“I appreciate Fr. Norm’s talks as he calls each of us to become more engaged in sharing Jesus Christ with one another.” Julie Randall
“Fr. Norm’s words come from a heart full of faith and love and you can feel it. He speaks to each listener as if you were the only one present. Fr. Norm ‘s talks leave you thirsting for more after listening to him. I got involved more deeply in parish ministries after hearing Fr. Norm talk on my first Faith Alive retreat. His faith is contagious.” Monique Beauvais
“I have attended many of the Faith Alive retreats that attracted people from other parishes and religious outlooks. Attending Fr. Norm’s events are very stimulating for me and have encouraged me to join the Veritas group at Our Lady of the Elms.” Jean Flory
“I enjoy attending Fr. Norm’s talks because he leads us on a deeper, richer Faith Journey as we grow in the light of Christ.” John Randall
“Because of the moving witnesses I heard while attending my first Faith Alive Retreat, I was moved to be a witness at a subsequent retreat. At these retreats, Fr. Norm Douglas has helped deepen my awareness and commitment to accept the challenge of living our Faith moment by moment WITH others and FOR others.” Elaine Sisler

Providing an opportunity for men to expand or initiate their relationship with Jesus Christ, our best Friend and Teacher
Since the beginning in 2000 of the Diocesan Catholic Men’s Conference, St. Hilary Parish has been its premier supporter, each year sending the largest parish group. Some men are already participating in the parish Men’s Group, Knights of Columbus, Bible study groups , etc. Others may be less (or not) actively involved in parish activities. They keep returning each year to enjoy the opportunity to listen to exciting speakers, go to confession, and to join in song and prayer with 500 or more happy men of all ages and from a wide variety of backgrounds. Many men also invite family members and friends to attend who are no longer practicing Christians or who are dissatisfied with their lives and are sincerely searching for a meaningful life style.

Christ Renews His Parish (CRHP) is a unique retreat opportunity to “get away from it all” in a serene setting, meet new friends, and spend time reconnecting with where you are in your faith journey. For many, it is a transformational encounter with Jesus and the Holy Spirit; a new or re-commitment to Him with deeper trust, followed by great interior freedom and joy. It is also great opportunity to create a network of supportive faith relationships with fellow Catholic men and women.
