Women's Retreat | Friday-Sunday, April 22-24
Step away from the stress of life and take time to look at your life with God. In the midst of the demands of normal life and daily commitments, a retreat is a wonderful opportunity to recover your balance and face the future with trust in God’s great love for you. We have been through much during the pandemic and probably learned a lot. A retreat is a good time to reset and find the key to a freer and more fulfilled life, close to Jesus. The atmosphere of personal prayer and recollection helps you to get to know God better, to grasp the meaning and purpose of your life and respond with more enthusiasm to life's challenges.
"You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free" (St John 8:32)
The retreat starts at 8 pm on Friday with a buffet meal and finishes on Sunday at 6 pm after a cup of coffee/tea.
Each day there will be Mass, Benediction and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, three half hour sessions of guided prayer called meditations given by the priest and talks by lay people.
