Virtual Retreat: Honoring Mary – A Woman Who Changed the World
May 23 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pmFree
Directed by Fr. Peter Fink, SJ
Something radical happened to the people of earth and to all of creation when the Son of God, chose to become a child born of a woman. And something radical happened to the people of the earth and to all of creation when Mary, in her freedom, said “yes”. From within her own body the one who would bring salvation to all became flesh. That is why Mary enters our prayer. She reaches out to us and calls us into her life and mission, for her mission is the mission of her Son.
This is a free, live-online retreat. Limited to the first 95 participants.
There will be three sessions (9am, 11am, and 1pm) with the opportunity for your own private prayer in between. The day prior to your retreat, you will receive a private link to access live presentations by your director. This virtual retreat uses the Zoom platform. A free Zoom account will be needed.
