Witnessing to Hope - Our Challenge in Difficult Times

Monday, June 3, 3:00pm - Friday, June 7, 1:00pm

Retreat for Women Religious

This is a guided retreat for women religious, using the prophets, Mark’s Gospel, Paul's Letter to the Philippians, music, art, and even some poetry.

Each day will include morning prayer, 2 presentations, celebration of Mass, evening prayer, and lots of silence in the newly expanded and renovated Jesuit Retreat Center. The 57 acres of woods, trails, and meadows will be alive for this early summer retreat. A good time, place, and retreat to celebrate the amazing love of our God!
