 A Retreat for Bereaved Mothers

Friday, November 1 to Sunday, November 3, 2019

At Finding Light and Life in our Darkness, bereaved mothers will have a safe place to share their stories with other women who are suffering due to the death of their child/children.  The retreat will be facilitated by experienced retreat directors, professional counselors, other bereaved mothers, and musicians.  This time together will give us an opportunity to share the story of our child with others in small group settings and within the large group of women.

The Marianist Retreat Center offers a safe and spiritual place for our tears and sorrow and find hope through the encouragement and strength of others. This retreat will include some large presentations, small group sharing, creative expression sessions, and music that will soothe our souls.   Time for quiet reflection in nature along the paths of 120 acres of rolling hills and trails on the banks of the Meramec River in Eureka, MO and a beautiful chapel for those who want the comfort of quiet prayer away from the busyness of everyday life.

The retreat will begin Friday, Nov. 1, 2019 at 5pm with registration and welcoming.  It will conclude on Sunday, Nov. 3, 2019 at noon.  The cost is $190 per person and includes private room, each with a private full bathroom, linens, towels, all meals (Friday dinner through breakfast on Sunday) and snacks.  All supplies needed for the activities will be provided as well.

This retreat will be open to the first 30 reservations. You can be placed on a waiting list in case of a cancellation.
