Introducing The Hidden Women of the Gospels
This retreat invites us into the beautiful and inspiring – and sometimes difficult and painful – stories of women who are remembered in the Gospels. They are wives, mothers, virgins, prophets, prostitutes and heroines. Few are named; most are not. Their stories, however, are long-lasting. Their stories are our stories. They challenge us to make our lives whole and holy, to shape our world into a global community of love, and to build up the Body of Christ.
This is a silent retreat. Guests are expected to maintain a sacred silence throughout the retreat, including at meals, unless otherwise noted.
