Hearts of Mary Retreat
Saturday, Jan 23, 2021 – Sunday, Jan 24, 2021
2:00pm – 4:00pm
An intergenerational retreat exploring the feminine genius
“All generations shall call me blessed !” Luke 1:48. Whatever her age, it is the ache in every female heart to know that she is chosen, beautiful, and loved. We also desire to love and give of ourselves. The perfect model of this love, virtue, and beauty is found in Mary. However, we also forget that Our Lady is relatable and understands our struggles.
She wants to walk with us on this journey, helping us to grow closer to her Son.
The Hearts of Mary Retreat is designed to foster in various generations what St. John Paul II called the “feminine genius,” by exploring how to apply the love and virtues of Mary to our modern-day lives. This retreat is offered to girls ages 7-14 and their accompanying mother, grandmother, aunt,
or godmother. The event will have Mary-related talks for adults and children as well as games, music, crafts, Eucharistic Adoration, sacrament of Reconciliation, and Mass. It is an overnight retreat with 2:00 p.m. arrival on Saturday and 4 p.m. departure on Sunday. Dinner, breakfast and lunch will be provided. The cost is $80 per adult and $30 per child. Led by MRCC Staff Julie Hickey and Jane Furey. Our retreat center is successfully up and running with Covid -19 protocols in place! Hearts of Mary retreat can accommodate a maximum of 42 retreatants at this time. For more information contact MRCC’s Program Coordinator, Julie Hickey at [email protected]
