The retreat center is letting us add people up until October 12! It isn't too late! Register now!
All women are invited to join us on retreat!
Join us for a weekend offering time for prayer, reflection, discussion, the opportunity to deepen your relationship with God and fellow Holy Name parishioners. Your retreat facilitators will be Julie Berggren, Director of Pastoral Care, and Jennifer Delvaux, Director of Faith Formation.
Over the course of the weekend we will explore our spiritual roots, what sustains and grounds us. We will gather new tools, methods, and spiritual experiences to nurture our faith, especially as we answer the call to be active, faith-filled disciples in our day-to-day lives. Finally, we will send you forth with help on how to continue nurturing your faith and call at home.
Our retreat will begin on Friday evening with arrival at 8:00 pm and the opening prayer starting at 8:30 pm. We will conclude on Sunday morning at 11:00 am.
Carpools are available and we appreciate all those who can volunteer to help drive other women - wonderful friendships developed from the last retreat's carpools!
Details on what to bring, directions, etc. will be mailed out to participants in the week preceding the event. However, all you will really need to bring is comfortable, casual clothing for the weekend (we always recommend layers), toiletries, and any items you wish to have on hand for individual prayer and reflection. We encourage you to bring your Bible and journal. You do not need to bring any linens. Everyone will have their own room with attached bathroom.
We are also asking every participant to submit a reading, poem, prayer, or other item that inspires or nurtures your spirit. Please email this to Jennifer Delvaux by October 6.
The deadline to register is October 12. However, the retreat may fill in advance of that date. We will do our best to accommodate everyone. If you have dietary restrictions &/or allergies, we encourage you to register as soon as you are able to allow the retreat center plenty of time to accommodate special requests.
