Friday March 3rd - Sunday March 5th
Spiritual Renewal Center in Victoria, TX
We are headed to a new retreat center this year, The Spiritual Renewal Center at 718 Gussie Schmidt Road in Victoria, Texas on March 3rd - 5th. Even though we are headed somewhere new, much of what you have come to love about the retreat will remain the same - our focus will still be on
Nationally known Catholic author and speaker Lisa Hendey will be leading our Retreat sessions-
The Grace of Yes!
Her talks will be centered around the themes of Grace found in her popular book, The Grace of Yes. A little about her book and the focus of the retreat:
In The Grace of Yes, Lisa Hendey explores the eight spiritual virtues she believes are the foundation of Christian life. Allowing readers to peek into the window of her own spiritual journey, she shows how the virtues of belief, generativity, creativity, integrity, humility, vulnerability, saying no, and starting over lead to generous living and the ability to joyously say yes to God.
Our first year of retreat, we discovered our worth as Daughters of God. This current year, we discovered the spiritual gifts given to us to support the Body of Christ. In 2017, we will discover how to live and give our best Yes to God. The retreat is open to all ladies of the parish whether it is your first retreat or your third.
Singer, Songwriter, and Parishioner Danielle Noonan will also join us for the weekend to lead us in live music at the retreat.
Other information you might be wondering....
What will we be doing at the retreat? …. Our focus will be three fold for the weekend. We want to provide a place for us to grow in our faith, develop a more personal relationship with God and allow us as women to grow in community and fellowship.
Are you saying, "I've never been to a Catholic Retreat"? Then this is the retreat for you! We will spend time with Jesus, ourselves and each other.
