Monthly Mini-Retreats for Women

Our Lady of Bethesda Retreat Center offers monthly mini-retreats for women, from Sept through June of each year.  This year’s theme is  “The Heart of a Catholic Know, Love, Live Your Faith!”  Topics will focus on what it means to be Catholic, knowing the difference that makes in my life, and learning how to share our JOY and HOPE with others.

Learn how to live a more meaningful and abundant life. 

Each month, we’ll learn tools to help our relationships, build our confidence, and help us grow in body, mind and soul. We’ll meet a new saint each month, broaden our repertoire of prayers and practices, receive book suggestions and info to continue learning.

Each session includes Mass, time for Confession, talks for the mind and heart, and time for personal reflection.  Think of it as a mini-vacation you deserve with Christ!
