SMMP Weekend Retreats
Why a St. Margaret Mary Retreat
The goal of every Christian is to grow in intimacy with God. A retreat is a great help! It is also a great help to be surrounded by people who desire a deep relationship with the Holy One. In order to become the person God desires us to be, we must create opportunities to make soul-contact with God and others. The retreat will provide such an opportunity.
The retreat will be held at Cardinal Stritch Retreat House in Mundelein, IL, an extraordinarily beautiful place to nourish the body and soul. It's a great place to take a nap or walk....or both.
+The retreat for women will be held February 6-8th; for the men, March 6-8th, 2015.
+My hope is that the participants of the retreats will be markedly diverse: young and old; married and single; former CRHP participants and non-CRHP participants.
+Each retreatant will have a private room and bath at the retreat house.
+The retreats will be facilitated by Sr. Madelyn Gould and Fr. Jonathan Foster.
+Time frame: Friday 5:30 PM departure through Sunday 1:30 PM return.
+Theme of the retreat: Into Deep Quiet....Reflections will focus on finding peace within and relating to God with wordless prayer.
+Cost: $150.00 (Includes meals, accommodations and bus transportation). $50.00 deposit at the time of reservation. (Total cost: $200.00)
+Please make checks payable to St. Margaret Mary Church.
If you have any questions, please call Sr. Madelyn Gould (630-369-0777).
