One Day Women’s Retreat

March 9 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

one day retreat

We are offering a one day retreat especially for those who do not feel comfortable attending overnight events amidst the ongoing COVID -19 epidemic.

This one-day retreat will have the same theme as our Women’s Weekend Retreat.

From the beginning of human history, the beauty and wonder of creation have inspired people to think of God. Whether it was the power of a storm or the beauty of a sunset, humans have experienced creation as revelatory of the greatness of a creator God. For early humans, the world was alive with spirits and the divine. And later, in many faith traditions, including both Hebrew and Christian, people have perceived the divine working through nature. In his encyclical, Laudato Sí, Pope Francis calls us “to protect our common home,” and mentions that “Saint Francis, faithful to Scripture, invites us to see nature as a magnificent book in which God speaks to us and grants us a glimpse of his infinite beauty and goodness.”

Our retreat theme, All Around Us We Have Known You, invites us to know and recognize all around us, especially in nature, the God who loves us, sustains us, cares for us, strengthens us, and holds us in being. This theme calls us to be aware that everything is connected, to enlarge our ideas of this God beyond all names, to let go of our prejudices about who God is and is not, about the places where we might “find” God, and about how we are able to relate to this God who exists beyond the limits of anything we can “know.”

Come and find a safe, quiet, sacred space where you can encounter God, where you will learn to trust more deeply this God of love and life and creation, and where you can surrender any dusty notions of who you are in this God whose most accurate name might just be that of Beloved Holy Creator.

We want you to know that. . .

Our one day Women’s Retreat will include two retreat conferences, A Reconciliation Service with individual confession, and Mass. Retreatants can expect to be on their way home by 4:00 pm.  A hearty lunch will be served.
