Care for the Caregiver: Come Away and Rest Awhile

October 15, 2019 9:00 am to 3:00 pm
A Day of Reflection for Men & Women

Retreat Title: Care for the Caregiver: Come Away and Rest Awhile

 If you are in a caregiving role or ministry, Bellarmine invites you to come for a restful, restorative day planned with you in mind.  The day will offer prayer, suggestions on self-care, Mass, optional time for sharing, and time to rest in the Lord.   In Mark's Gospel, Jesus invites His disciples to "Come away by your selves to a deserted place and rest a while." Might He be inviting you?

Program Cost: $50.00 (includes Lunch)
