Cast Men's Organization
CAST stands for Catholic, Apostolic, Sacramental, Theology. Our Lady of Fatima’s CAST Ministry holds a retreat for men every six months in Grand Isle, Louisiana. The men on this retreat seek to go deeper into their faith through strengthening community, deepening devotion and closer relationship to our Lord Jesus Christ. Fr. Russo leads the retreat, conducting talks and challenging the men throughout the weekend. The retreat begins on a Thursday evening at 5:00pm in Grand Isle. Upon arrival in Grand Isle, all logistics will be taken care of. All meals, sleeping arrangements, and fishing arrangements are in the hands of our staff and guides. Our goal is to return to Fatima on Sunday by noon. The cost of the retreat is $250.
Please note: Financial difficulties should not prevent anyone from attending the retreat. If you have financial concerns, confidential arrangements can be made by contacting Deacon Ed Boustany or Hart Littell. Bring rods, reels, and clothing for 3 days and Mass attire. You will be contacted about any further necessities prior to the retreat. If you need more information or have any questions, please contact: Hart Littell 337-344-3104 or Deacon Ed Boustany 337-654-4448 or Fatima front office 337-232-8945. Registrations will be accepted by the Fatima Parish office.
The CAST men who have attended the retreat meet regularly on a monthly basis for dinner and fellowship, study, and community prayer. The Cast Mass is every Monday morning at 6:15am.
