Encountering Christ

Sunday, February 18—Tuesday, February 20
7 p.m.

Our human limitations prevent us from experiencing God as He is. It would be easier to place the whole ocean in a hole we dig in the sand than for our little minds to grasp God’s immensity. Therefore, God became one like us in all ways but sin.


In Jesus Christ, the impossible has become possible: God is revealed to lowly humanity. What would it be like to meet God face to face? How would that change us? We will explore the mystery of the Incarnation and the Truth of our capacity to know the Divine.

The annual Parish Mission at St. Ladislas is an opportunity for our faith community to come together to reflect on God's Word, renew our faith, and pray with open hearts and hands.

Reflect Upon a Different Theme Each Evening

NIGHT 1: Is God really who I imagine Him to be?

NIGHT 2: What do others have to do with my relationship to God?

NIGHT 3: What does God see in me?
