The annual Women's retreat is scheduled for April 17, 18 and 19, Retreat # W8, at Christ the King Passionist Retreat Center. the Center is a hidden jewel nestled in the center of Citrus Heights, California.
The retreat is a wonderful opportunity for the women of the parish to take some time for themselves; to slow down; to forget the busyness of their lives; and to connect with the divine. It is a time of reflection, prayer and perhaps renewal.
The Theme this year is "Come and See" and is based on St. John's Gospel. We will follow the disciples of St. John the Baptizer who followed Jesus to His dwelling place. The invitation Jesus extended to those disciples is offered to us as we gather to dwell with Jesus and learn.
The cost for the weekend, which includes delicious meals, is $230.00 for single occupancy or $210.00 for double occupancy. Scholarships are available. There is also car pooling for those who do not wish to drive themselves. If this weekend is in conflict with your schedule, any alternative weekend is also available for one to attend. The schedule of weekends and the application are on the website which is christthekingretreatcenter.org.
It is suggested that registration be done early as space fills up quickly for the end of the season.
For more information call Ursula McManus (775) 782-3003, Pat Cardinal (775) 267-7106, or the retreat center (916) 725-4720. We hope many will make the time for this wonderful experience with other women of faith and with our Lord Jesus Christ.
