Women’s Retreat – April 23 to April 25

Thank you, Catholic women! We are out of spaces for overnight accommodations for the women’s retreat. We can still accept applications for the day programs, however. Please complete a registration form and complete payment.

Lord, teach us to pray

A retreat for women

God created the human person for Holy Communion with Himself — eternally!  Prayer is our attempt to know Him … to love Him … to embrace Him. But fallen human nature, the cares and distractions of our day-to-day lives, the ever-present reality of a “Culture of Death” about us, and the devil make deep, calm, quiet contemplative prayer difficult—or even impossible (so we think!)

Wander … ponder … read … sleep … pray

The pace of daily life spent serving others can leave us feeling depleted and weary, with little time for fruitful prayer. “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and worried about many things. There is need of only one thing. Mary has chosen the better part and it will not be taken from her” (Luke 10:41-42) . Learn how to sit at the feet of the Master and refresh and renew your spirit.
