Annual Women's Fall Retreat

Adult Faith Formation

The women of our parish gather every Fall for a day long retreat. The retreat is held off-campus at a retreat center to allow the women time to get away from their busy lives for some quiet reflection and spiritual guidance. The retreat goes from 9 AM to 4:30 PM and concludes with the weekend Mass.
