The mission of the Spiritual Life Center at Maryvale Convent is to provide opportunities for spiritual growth and deepening of one’s relationship with God, self, and others. Currently we offer a biannual women’s retreat and private retreats. A private retreat can be scheduled at any time. Contact Carrie at Maryvale for more information.
During this retreat, we will prayerfully reflect on God’s love for us and the nature of love as presented to us in the Scriptures, the lives of saints and one’s own personal life.
This retreat allows a person time alone in a peaceful and prayerful atmosphere.
“Come to Me…” Women’s Retreat
Led by Sr. Anne Germaine Picard
and Dianne Allmaras, SMP Associate.
Each of us has come from different circumstances, we are individually and uniquely made through the image of God. We come from all sorts of different backgrounds but our humanity is unquestionably the same.
We practice faith, feel pain and sorrow; we laugh and cry; we find joy and happiness; and we give love– but no matter who we are, or what our story is– we are all invited to come unto Christ and be perfected by Him.
Input sessions, a panel of speakers, examples of women Saints and personal reflections will lead us to respond to Jesus’ invitation, “Come to Me…”
July 19-21, 2024; Please register by July 12.
The retreat begins at 5:00 pm on Friday with registration followed by supper, and concludes by 1:00 pm on Sunday.
