Women's Retreat

Welcome!

Welcome to our St. Max Women’s Lenten retreat. We are so honored to have you joining us! We hope you are able to spend most of your weekend experiencing and finding joy that is a foreshadowing of the eternal joy we will one day have.

Please follow the Schedule document below to include as many experiences as you are able. Each of the 4 retreat sessions has a similar format. There is a drop down that reveals the following for each session.

  • First, we will spend about 15 minutes journaling using Spiritual Journaling documents prepared by the retreat team that should help you enter into the theme of the session. Please print these documents and have them available when you attend the retreat.
  • Second, there is a link to a video from our sister parish, St. Patrick’s in Uganda.
  • Third, you will find a link to the live presentation by our retreat master Fr. Simon Peter.
  • Finally, there is a Prayer Partner Discussion Suggestions document. All attendees will be assigned a prayer partner. Please make plans to have your discussions over zoom or the phone. Please print these documents and have them available when you attend the retreat.

Please take time to review this web page before the retreat so that you are familiar with how it is laid out. There are live and recorded videos and documents to print. Please print the documents and have them ready for when you will need them during our retreat.

Consider it all joy!
