Run. Soar. Be Free. Finish Strong!

Join us for our annual Women’s Wellness Weekend, a time of inspiration, spiritual growth and companionship. Dr. Veirdre Jackson will be our featured speaker on Saturday and Sunday.

“Let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.” (Hebrews 12:1) Are there trials, pressures, burdens that you feel the weight of? We need to recognize that life’s training has a purpose, and it is for a season; and where you are today is no accident. With every test we stand at the crossroads of being bitter or better, broken or built up, victim or victor. This message is for every woman who is ready to break the cycle of getting weighed down in life’s race and is ready for God’s promises of life and abundance.  God is using this training season in life to shape and prepare you for your “Race Day”. This season is preparing you for a time when life’s weight has been lifted and your strength, endurance, stamina, and speed are fully revealed. It will be a time when you are at the finish line in the place you were destined to be. Run. Soar. Be Free. Finish Strong

Check-in begins as early as 3pm. Dinner will be served at 6pm and then the retreat will begin with a fun, social time of games and crafts.

Saturday begins with a feature presentation by Dr. Veirdre Jackson. Then, you will have a choice of three out of nine workshops to attend throughout the day. Workshops will include choices of spiritual, artistic and physical topics such as prayer, crafts and yoga. (You will be emailed a list of choices a few weeks before the retreat.) Saturday evening will be a time of socializing, crafts and a movie with snacks and wine available.

On Sunday, Dr. Jackson will close the weekend with a special presentation and you’ll have time to attend an optional Mass or relax before lunch. Guests will depart after lunch.

You won’t want to miss this special annual retreat. Many guests return year after year and we welcome new guests too!
