Transformation - Lenten Women's Retreat
Fri, Mar 24, 2017, 8:00 PM – Sun, Mar 26, 2017, 11:00 AM CDT
All women are invited to join us on a weekend focusing on encounter and transformation.
Through the stories of three Gospel women we will look at our own encounters with Jesus and the challenges we face in transforming our lives. We will explore the stories and journeys of Mary, the Mother of God; Mary of Magdala, first witness of the resurrected Jesus, and Apostle to the Apostles; and the Woman at the Well as the foundation for the reflections.
The weekend will include large group reflections, small group discussions, individual prayer time, and Mass (on Saturday evening). There will be the opportunity to explore spiritual direction with Julie Berggren or lectio divina with Jennifer Delvaux. In addition there are acres of grounds to explore during free time and the quiet atmosphere to relax.
All participants will have their own rooms with en suite bathrooms. All meals on Saturday and Sunday's breakfast are included.
Our retreat will begin on Friday evening with arrival at 8:00 pm and 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.
The deadline to register is March 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.
