Registration is open and we are thrilled to invite you to open your hearts to the saints as we embark as sisters in Christ on this journey to embrace our sainthood.
As Father John Ricardo says, “The real heroes, the real celebrities are the saints. They are the only ones worth imitating.”
As we gather together, we invite you to take time to reflect and renew yourself in this beautiful retreat we have planned for you. We encourage you to immerse yourself in the beauty of our Catholic faith with the talks, prayers, and devotions offered throughout this retreat.
Your Sisters in Christ,
Paula Schemmel Moyer, Jessica Atwell, Cristina Bezama
