Surrounded by God’s beautiful creation at San Pedro Spiritual Development Center in Winter Park, Bishop Noonan joined a group on retreat for the celebration of Mass on April 7, 2018.
Adults with special needs from around the Diocese of Orlando were gathered for their second annual retreat day focused on the gifts of God’s creation. “All life is sacred and demands dignity as children created equal in God’s eyes,” said Henry Fortier, Superintendent of Catholic Schools for the Diocese of Orlando.
Kathy Harding, Morning Star Catholic School Outreach Coordinator began this retreat for Morning Star Catholic School alumni in 2017. Alumni returned this year as well as residents of Bishop Grady Villas in St. Cloud and other adults with special needs within the diocese.
