A Day of Reflection for Women
May 10, 2024
9:00 am to 3:00 pm
Program Cost: $70.00 (includes Lunch)
Spend a day with other moms tending to your spirit and rediscovering your God-given purpose, while also spending time with Mary the Mother of Jesus as well as Scriptural images of God mothering us. Be encouraged as you consider what your parenting is rooted in and how you can move more deeply into your truest identity, which transcends even your motherhood.
Grandmothers and mothers of adult children are welcome, too!
A day or evening of reflection, grounded in the Jesuit tradition, is a shorter version of the Ignatian Weekend Retreat. Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, a day or evening program is sure to give you the peace and serenity needed to be still and to rest in God's loving embrace.
Your day or evening of reflection includes thematic talks from our skilled Retreat Leaders, time for private prayer, celebration of Mass and a meal.
Bellarmine has two libraries, a resource center, two chapels, and many other common areas. Outdoor spaces include a various walking trails, various prayer gardens, a gazebo, stations of the cross, as well as a few patios and outdoor chairs and benches.
