A Women's Silent Spiritual Retreat will be held July 14-16, 2023 at Maryhill Renewal Center. This will be a "preached" retreat.
Come and sit at His feet... This retreat will explore the spirituality of the feminine genius, specifically in light of Jesus’ invitation to spiritual poverty. This is a silent preached retreat in that the retreatants will be silent during the weekend so one can hear and reflect. Claire will draw on Scripture, the wisdom of St. Therese of Lisieux, and her own life experiences and ministry to help women grow in their spirituality and intimacy with Christ.
The retreat will consist of Talks, Mass, Adoration, Sacrament of Reconciliation along with
quiet time for rest and reflection. Lodging and all meals are included. The retreat will begin after check-in
at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, July 14 and the retreat ends on Sunday after 12:15 p.m. dinner.
