Weekend Retreat for Mothers of Young Children



Weekend Retreat for Mother's of Young Children | Friday-Sunday, January 28-30

Learn new tools to take care of your heart, spirit, life and relationships. It is an opportunity to reflect on the meaning of your life, to enrich your marriage and family life in the light of your Catholic faith. The closer a mum is to Christ the closer the whole family will be to Christ. The atmosphere of silence, personal prayer, and recollection which is maintained throughout helps you to know God better, to discover His great love for you and to find deep joy and security in the conviction of His love.
