A Special Retreat For Mothers of Avenue Girls
Thursday 8:00pm – Sunday 3:00pm
Murray Hill Retreat Center
As mothers of teens, we have so many demands on our time, and we are often focused on the small crises of the present moment, the logistics and forms needed, the shopping and errands, the balance of work and home, our minutes are full. Yet our days, weeks, months and years are built out of these very minutes, and our lives are changing quickly as our children grow. Time feels short, but our lives can be so much more fruitful, calm and recollected if we resolve to set aside some time for for quiet, prayer and consideration.
At this retreat, we will have several days of silent prayer. There will be guided meditations, daily Mass, the Holy Rosary and practical talks, but there will also be lots of time of quiet for your to consider your vocation as a wife and mother, your goals and desires, your relationship with God primarily and also with family and friends.
Your mind will be free to pray and rest as the logistics are taken care of with family care that is in keeping with the spirit of Opus Dei - you will have a small, comfortable private room with bathroom, and will be served three meals a day and a snack with gracious hospitality in the Murray Hill Retreat Center.
