People of all faiths are invited and encouraged to join us in praying, sacrificing, attending prayer vigils, fasting, offering up suffering, sharing information, attending Holy Mass, praying before the Blessed Sacrament, increasing in sanctity, educating, witnessing, writing...and most importantly by living morally and loving heroically.
Together, let us storm heaven with our collective good works and role-model an end to the colossal humanitarian catastrophe of legalized abortion and euthanasia.

For Immediate Release
Catholic Writers to Enjoy Special Spiritual Retreat
Lansing, MI: In collaboration with FAITH Catholic Publishing and Communications, The Catholic Writers Guild, will sponsor Your Word is My Delight, a Catholic writers' retreat, Oct 5-9, 2011. Come and delight in God's word and sacrament, and pray in a beautiful and serene retreat setting.
The retreat's key presenter is Pat Gohn, Catholic columnist, podcaster and catechist http://www.patgohn.com/patgohn/About.html. Other presenters are Father Charles E. Irvin, David Krajewski, Father David Rosenberg and Father Larry Delaney.
Writers will enjoy five spiritually-enriching days of daily Mass, adoration, the sacrament of reconciliation and many hours of writing time. Talks will explore how God speaks to and encourages writers through Scripture, papal writings and other topics in order to promote faith-filled writing.
Opportunities for networking also will be offered through an informal "book bash and social hour" Wednesday evening and Faith Catholic's one-on-one "pitch sessions" that give writers the chance to sell their current writing projects.
Cost for the four-day retreat is $450, which includes meals and accommodations. Deadline for registration is Sept 28. A nonrefundable deposit of $45 is required at registration.
