A Day of Reflection for Women

Retreat Masters: Fr. J. Michael Sparough, SJ and Rachel Forton
Retreat Title: Holy is Her Name

Spend a day in the presence of other women getting in touch with the feminine qualities of God as we explore what it means to say "holy is Her name." As women, we do ourselves a disservice if we only ever relate to a male image of God. We know that God is without gender and encompasses all the masculine and feminine qualities of humanity. Imagining a feminine God helps us view our own femininity as sacred and precious. We will draw from Scripture (where God is referred to as a mother hen, midwife, laboring woman, and more), the words of holy women such as Julian of Norwich and Hildegard of Bingen, and the work of numerous women theologians and spiritual writers. Join us as we share prayer experiences designed to open our hearts to new ways of seeing God within and around us.

A Day of Reflection for Adults

Retreat Master: Fr. Dan Hartnett, SJ
Retreat Title: Spanish Day of Prayer: La Humilidad de Dios

Puede sonar extraño hablar de la “humildad” de Dios. Si nos fijamos en la imagen de Dios que ha sido revelado en la persona de Jesús, vemos efectivamente que Dios es, antes que nada, humilde, cercano y sencillo. Durante este día de oración, trataremos de purificar nuestras imágenes de Dios, concentrándonos tanto en la belleza de la creación como en el misterio de la encarnación. Si llegamos a conocer el rostro humilde de nuestro Dios, nos quedará más claro cómo hemos de ser imagen de Dios y cómo ser discípulo de Jesús.

Favor de registrarse de antemano. Es necesario para que haya comida suficiente en el almuerzo y para cumplir con las normas de distanciamiento social. Gracias!

Program Cost: There is no cost for this retreat; free will donations accepted. Se aceptan donaciones. (includes Lunch)
