Retreat Day: Mary in a Martha World

November 13 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Retreat Day: Mary in a Martha World

On this Retreat Day, we will delve into the narrative about Martha and Mary from the Gospel of Luke. Mary and Martha, as we know, represent contemplation and action, a tension that resonates in each of our lives as we strive to find a balance. But what if the Christian ideal is not about choosing one over the other, but about integrating both? Together, we’ll explore what Scripture scholars are saying about this story and whether there is some good news in it for active women like us, navigating the complexities of faith and daily life. We value your insights and invite you to join us at Our Lady of Calvary for Morning Prayer, a Retreat Conference, an opportunity for Confession, Mass, and lunch, where we can engage in meaningful discussions and personal reflections.

Presenter: Sister Mary Ann Strain, C.P. entered the Sisters of the Cross and Passion in 1977 and was professed in 1979. She holds a Master of Arts in Religious Studies from Providence College.

Sister Mary Ann has spent most of her religious life in retreat ministry; as Program Director here at OLC, on the Passionist Preaching band, preaching parish missions throughout the United States, and as a member of the retreat team at Holy Family Passionist Retreat Center.
