Men’s Retreat

2019 Men's Retreat
St. Anthony’s 3rd Annual Men’s Retreat by God Sent Men Ministry will be held at beautiful, historic Rosaryville Spirit Life Center on December 7-8, 2019. The theme of our retreat is “Freedom to Heal”. Men ages 18+ are invited to join us for a brief period of spiritual respite. We are again led by Fr. Anthony Odiong through the spoken word, reflection and healing. This year we also welcome Mr. John LaBriola, author of “Onward Catholic Solider,” as our guest speaker to challenge our perceptions and capabilities as Catholic men in today’s world. Anointed music will be led by Leper’s Road. Delicious meals will be prepared by Rosaryville.
Come Holy Spirit, fill our hearts with the grace of your love!

Father Anthony Odiong

Rev. Anthony Odiong , pastor of St. Anthony of Padua in Luling, is from Calabar, Southern Nigeria. He underwent seminary formation in Nigeria and was ordained a priest on November 13, 1993. After ordination he did some pastoral work, taught high school, and also taught philosophy at the regional seminary. At the invitation of then Bishop Aymond, he was appointed to the Diocese of Austin, Texas where he was assigned associate pastor at St. Mary’s of the Assumption in West, Texas. Thereafter, he was appointed Director of Campus Ministry at St. Peter’s Catholic Student Center at Baylor University. He served in that capacity until he went to Rome to study for a doctorate degree in Dogmatic Theology. Fr. Anthony holds a Masters in Theology from Franciscan University of Steubenville, Ohio and continues to work on his doctorate degree.

Rosaryville was established by the Benedictine Fathers in 1890. The mission of Rosaryville evolved over the years and in 1981 Rosaryville Spirit Life Center was established. This historic retreat and conference center continues until present time to minister to both adults and youth.  Visitors passing through the Rosaryville gates first notice the impressive St. John Hall with the central statue of the Sacred Heart of Jesus on the front lawn. There also are the beautiful Lourdes Grotto and the Fatima scene as well as restful benches.  The acreage has many other structures such as Kateri Hall with the newest addition being the Queen of the Most Holy Rosary Chapel. The spacious beauty of the Louisiana landscape that includes an expansive lake provides a serene setting for reflection and prayer.
