Our Blessed Mother: Our Role Model Retreat

Many of us have turned to our mothers for comfort, love, security, direction and encouragement. Our mothers were also among our first role models. God in his wisdom has given us a spiritual mother who does all of this perfectly because she is full of grace and always does the will of her Son. Our Blessed Mother models beautiful virtues that would benefit all of us: knowing and following the will of God, praying and pondering Scripture, accepting suffering, and growing in purity and humility.

Join us for a short weekend retreat right here at St. Mary’s on Friday, March 16, 7:00-8:30 pm (following the Lenten Supper) and Saturday, March 17, from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm. We will discover how we can draw closer to Jesus as we develop a relationship with His Mother and imitate her virtues. The cost is only $10. Please find registration forms at the church exits or on the desk in the St. Joseph Center. Contact Joanne if you have questions: This email address is being protected from spambots.
