An Ignatian, Silent Weekend Retreat for Women
Jesus said “Seeing they see not, and hearing they hear not” (Mt 13:13). What might we be missing in the stressful and busy pace of our lives today? What message might Jesus have to offer to women of our time? Come join other women of faith as we explore the stories of women in Scripture and contemporary women who encounter the living Jesus. The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius bid us to “come and see.”
