Come Home for the Weekend

We have been called to heal wounds, to unite what has fallen apart, and to bring home those who have lost their way --Francis of Assisi

Healing our Wounds
from the Inside Out

with Author Paula D'Arcy

November 9 ~ 11, 2018

​Facilitator: Paula D’Arcy

A deeper look at the way we are all living our lives.
What happens when we stop believing
that change will only happen “out there, ”
and begin to realize that we are the world,
and healing begins from the inside out.

Annual Autumn Women’s Retreat Faith ~ A Journey

towards what we cannot see

September 7~9, 2018

​Facilitator Father Joseph Serano, o. praem

​As Mother Nature paints Pennsylvania with the brilliant hues of Autumn, we invite you to join us for a special weekend of prayer, designed just for women.

We will begin our autumn retreat weekend with a closer look at the ABRAHAM story, suggesting that his journey in faith mirrors our own. As we concentrate on the MYSTERY toward which we journey, we will reflect on the God who is “more than we can hope or imagine”. As the weekend comes to a close, we will share some thoughts on how we might look again at the PRAYING that is so integral to our ongoing journey.

Come, enjoy a weekend away with Jesus!
Let Him lead your heart through a weekend of grace!
​Check in begins at 6:00 PM
​First Session: 7:30 PM

Advent Retreat Weekend

                                    Isaiah, John the Baptist & Mary ~
our Models for Advent Waiting

December 7~9, 2018

​Facilitator Father Joseph Serano, o. praem

We tend to think of waiting as a passive activity, when in fact the “waiting of Advent” is a call to action.  We are preparing not just to celebrate the Coming of the Christ Child, but equally, we look forward to the Final Coming of the Christ at the end of the ages.

By looking at these three key Advent figures, we can better see what we “called to do”  to celebrate the First Coming and be ready for the Final Coming of the One Lord.

Annual Women’s

​Spirituality Weekend

The Journey is Made Holy by Walking

January 11 ~ 13, 2019

RETREAT TEAM

Sr. Marguerite Stewart, OSF
Sr. Virginelle Makos, OSF

Life is a journey made up of days that are bright and hope filled, where we feel alive and open to the challenge’s of life. There are, however, those other days where we are not sure that we can continue. And yet, as sisters and brothers in Christ, we are called to live in faith and journey in hope, despite the challenges that face us. Spend the weekend with us as we discover how this journey is made possible and how we are made HOLY by our walking..
