Life is messy. We make wrong turns that turn out to be right ones. We make right turns that turn out as wrong ones. Sometimes we make wrong turns that just keep getting ‘wronger’. Where is Jesus in all this? Does He really have a plan for me today? What about in the future? Will I be happy on His path? What if I’m not? Is following God just an oppressive monotony of constantly saying yes to things that I don’t want to do?

Join us as we dive into the idea of living on purpose and being fully alive with powerful worship, a relevant teaching, and Eucharistic Adoration. Nights are free and open to all ages and faiths.


Meet the Team

Matt Ladner

Mission Contact/Worship Leader
Matt’s first profound experience of God was during 2001 when he attended Sacred Heart Boys’ Retreat #60. Unfortunately, the “seed fell on rocky soil AND thorns grew up and choked it.” His faith was shallow and the lures of the world were too much for him to handle so years of internal misery followed. Then, God cut deeper into the soil of his soul when he attended Steubenville on the Bayou in June 2008. Since then, he has an undying passion for sharing the Gospel message and Eucharistic Adoration. He is married to his incredible wife Danielle, and they have 4 children (Elise, Truitt, Cohen, and Declan).

Along with a vocation to his family, Shea also serves as a team member for the Boys Retreat of Sacred Heart in Dedeaux, MS and Co-Director of Pod Apostle. “With steady hands and a sober heart, God give me the strength to reach your people through this music that you gave me.”-Brother Red

    Want to thank you and your ministry for the wonderful service at St. Charles Borromeo in Picayune Ms on April 14 of this year. I attend mass every Sunday at 5:30 p.m., recently lose my husband and attending mass is very up lifting. The Lord Jesus had helped me in so many ways since his passing that I know he is over seeing me. My purpose of this is to thank you for such a heart moving experience for me to be their and listening to the people singing was such a loving heart. I signed up at the end of the service with my name and e-mail, will love to go to the next one if it is close in my area.

    Everything in church made me feel peaceful, closer to Jesus by listening to the songs,watching the mass.You did such a heart moving experience for me, I know I said before, but I was crying because of my spiritual feelings. Please thank your staff that were their that night because they were great.

    Once again, thank you,God bless you,
    Carol Namias
