Hello and Happy Advent from the Western Region!

We had such a wonderful retreat at the Mater Delorosa Passionist Retreat Center. Women from six states were there and we were so blessed to have Bishop Buckon with us and provide us will Mass, blessings and his wisdom!

We also had a fantastic Passionist Priest Fr. Carrillo speak to us on the woman at the well and he specializes in canon law so he was very ready for our ladies questions!

Our Keynote Speaker was Lisa Hendey from catholicmom.com and wow, what a gifted speaker! We all enjoyed her so much! She spoke on The Grace of Yes and it was so helpful in balancing everything in today’s world.

It was such a blessing to have so many be able to attend and have such wonderful fellowship and see some beautifully seasoned faces and some new ones also!

Can’t wait to see everyone at Forum in San Diego!
