“Grace is ours to receive through our sacramental life.”

Women’s Retreat

How much do you know about your faith? Do you wish you could be more upbeat about the Catholic Church? Are you doing anything to grow your faith? Are you a ‘Cradle Catholic’? Come find out Friday evening to Sunday noon, September 26 to 28.

Come. Take some time out to be fed. Get to know some of the other women in our parish. If you have recently joined St. Charles from Holy Name of Jesus or any other parish, we would love to get to know you better and welcome you into our family. Ask questions, renew your hope. We share a great weekend and would love for you to join us. The theme of this year’s retreat is “Gifts Beyond Compare.” The conferences will focus on the gifts we receive through several of the sacraments. Grace is ours to receive through our sacramental life.

The suggested cost is $130 for a single room and $100 ea. for a shared room. The retreat begins with registration from 6:30—7:45 pm on Friday and closes Sunday at noon after Mass. Don’t let anything hold you back. If you can’t afford the whole amount, pay what you can. Rides can be arranged. To reserve a room or for more information, call Mary Gardner (227-0691) or Donna LaDuca (342-3234).

Please join the men of St. Charles on our annual retreat at Notre Dame Retreat House, Friday evening through Sunday noon, September 19 to 21. Now is a good time to mark your calendar and make a reservation. The deadline for reservations is September 14 as long as space is available.

You'll enjoy a retreat. It offers you a time to refresh yourself. A RETREAT gets you away from the daily grind and distractions of our modern living. It offers you a welcome physical rest, release from tensions, mental peace - and above all SPIRITUAL REFRESHMENT.
