Fr. Bart Hutcherson will be coming to offer a Lenten reflection on the nature of sin, contrition, conversion, mercy, and forgiveness, rooted in Jesus' Parable of the Prodigal Son.


Fr. Bart Hutcherson, O.P. is a Dominican Friar and Priest of the Province of the Holy Name of Jesus in the Western USA.  Ordained in 1997, he has spent most of his priesthood in university and parish ministry.  Now, as an Itinerant Preacher, he uses story-telling, teaching, retreats, and pilgrimages to share the Gospel with others.  His retreats and missions are rooted deeply in his love for the Word of God and a deeply Catholic understanding of Sacred Scripture.  He currently resides at St. Albert's Priory in Oakland, California.  You can learn more about Father Bart and his Preaching Ministry at www.FrBart.com.


All are invited to join us for the 8 AM Mass each day and are encouraged to attend any of the talks over the four-day period. (Morning talks repeat in the evening.)


Called together by Jesus Christ, who came to restore us to friendship with the Father, we continue the work of our Savior to bring salvation to all peoples through the life-giving Church He established.


Inspired by the example of St. Katharine Drexel, we strive to serve the Lord by:


  • Making the Eucharist the source and summit of our lives

  • Building intentional community

  • Preaching the Gospel to the people of Amador County

  • Forming missionary disciples

  • Reaching out to those in need
