Women’s Silent Retreat

“I am the Alpha and the Omega, I make all things new.” ~ Revelations 22:13

November 16 – 18, 2018

Poverello of Assisi Retreat House

1519 Woodworth St., San Fernando, 91340

Join us as we explore our Blessed Mother’s ‘yes’ to the Angel Gabriel’s news that she was chosen by God—the Annunciation. She responds, “Behold the Lord’s handmaid. May it happen to me according to your word.” Mary’s life would be surrounded by mystery, joys, and sufferings, not unlike ours today. Her ‘yes’ is a light for us. On this retreat, Fr. Peter Devereux, LC, will lead us to an encounter with Jesus Christ through guided meditations, talks on scripture, encyclicals, and the lives of the saints, helping us to discover and follow the mission God has for each of us—a call to holiness as daughters of God.

COST* $250 per person (room & board for single or shared occupancy)

Carmelite Women’s Retreat—March 1–3, 2019 

This year our retreat is the weekend before Ash Wednesday so it will be a great way to prepare for Lent with a quiet prayerful time to connect with our Lord.

Our retreat theme is “In You all find their home” (Ps 87:7). This theme will touch on aspects of being in the family of God, church and our own family.

I encourage you to reserve your room early in January or even now! Semi-private rooms and double rooms are plentiful. Semi-privates have a private sleeping area with a sink vanity; each room with a second door (which locks) to the shower/toilet. Double rooms are two beds in the room with a private bathroom (you do not have to find a roommate to reserve).

There is a limitation on the number of commuters that can be accommodated, so if you plan on attending just for the day, reserve early.

Flyers will be in the church in January, with bulletin announcements and posters.

Looking forward to seeing many of you at our retreat!

God Bless you,
