Women’s Lenten Retreat
March 11-13, 2011
Mercy Retreat Center, Auburn
Theme: The Road to Forgiveness
Come for fellowship, fun, community,
quiet time, rest and spiritual growth
This year’s Women’s Retreat focus is on the Lenten theme of Forgiveness. For most of us it is a process. It calls into question what gets in the way of setting others free from painful stories in our lives. We are reminded that one of the most difficult tasks in life is learning to forgive ourselves over things we wished had never happened.
Retreats work because we leave the trappings of everyday life to move closer to God’s abiding presence with intention. We seek out holy places where the grounds and architecture speak of God’s inescapable presence. We reflect, we sing, we pray, we walk, we eat, we laugh. The schedule is relaxed with open times for rest and reflection.
The cost of the retreat is $165.00 before Feb. 15th, $170.00 after Feb. 15th. Registrations are done at the Cathedral Bookshop and are accepted with payment in full. Registrations are non-refundable. Please contact Jackie McGrath at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have further questions. We look forward to seeing you.
