Moments with Mary Afternoon Retreat:

Join us for a 3-hour retreat designed to help you learn more about the Blessed Virgin Mary as a figure of grace, obedience, and maternal strength. We will delve into the many titles of the Virgin Mary, exploring her significant role not only in Catholicism but also in various other faiths. We invite you to find a deeper connection to the Lady in blue!

This retreat offers a unique opportunity to connect with like-minded women through prayer, reflection, and shared stories of faith as we seek a deeper relationship with Our Blessed Mother.

The retreat also includes a creative session - we will craft our own pieces of jewelry, designed to honor Mary, and allowing each participant to create something meaningful and personal that reflects her devotion.

*Meet and mingle from 12-12:55 PM. Program begins at 1:00 PM

What Are Women Saying?

“I haven’t been on a retreat in ​over 5 years (4 littles at home) ​the “mini” retreat was perfect, ​and I also loved the theme!”

“I found a thirst for Christ I ​didn’t know was there!”

“I loved the opportunity to listen ​to the reflections and journal ​afterward. Loved the art activity- ​something to take home with ​me.”
