Midweek Silent Preached Retreat for Women
October 5 - 7 2021
Theme: "Teresa of Avila;
Drawing Near to God."
A colorful extra ordinary woman, Saint Teresa of Avila teaches us how to draw near to our Lord so as to always be mindful of him with us.
Teaching us how to pray, she wrote the way she spoke: spontaneously and in an unsophisticated manner. As she spoke to her novices and to the Castillian people of her time, Teresa speaks to us.
Come, let us learn the joys, challenges, and sufferings of Teresa of Jesus. Much in her life will speak to your own.
