Our Friends Day of Prayer retreats are held monthly on the first Wednesday of the month. Everyone is welcome to attend and you can drop into any month. It’s not required to attend every retreat. Everyone will gather for coffee and pastries for the first half hour. Fr. Matt will give a morning presentation, and then he will celebrate Mass in the Chapel afterwards. A delicious lunch will be served and then he will give an afternoon presentation. Free time will be offered to walk the labyrinth, spend quiet time in prayer or shop in the bookstore.
Fr. Matthew Buening grew up in Howard County and went to seminary at the North American College in Rome. He was ordained a priest in 2003 for the Archdiocese of Baltimore. He currently is pastor of St. Matthew and Blessed Sacrament parishes in Baltimore City.
