MRCC Women’s Lenten Retreat


MRCC Women’s Lenten Retreat

Co-sponsored by St. Alban Roe

St. Joseph is known as the patron saint of many things:  foster parents, carpenters, a happy death. This weekend retreat will focus on the person of Joseph in his multiple dimensions, many of which we rarely consider. What was Joseph’s family history like? What was his life of prayer and faith like? How might he have understood his own role in salvation history? As we explore and reflect on these characteristics of Joseph, the retreat will also invite us to ponder how Joseph might be a source of inspiration, intercession, and hope for us, too, in our life journeys with Jesus the Christ.
2 nights/4 meals: $250
1 night/4 meals: $185
45 spaces overnight
