Spotlight on Women

Our 15th annual Lenten Retreat for Women is being held this coming Saturday, March 14, at St. Magdalen de Pazzi parish in Flemington, NJ.  Our keynote speaker is Mary Beth Newkumet and her topic is "When I found Him Whom my heart loves (Song of Songs 3:4) - A Woman's Encounter with Christ Today."

If you live nearby and are interested in coming, the retreat begins with the parish 8:30 a.m. Mass and ends at 1:15 p.m. Workshops will be given by the Sisters.  They are: 

a.  Mary at Cana:  Women caring for the family
b.  Saints in the family: Holy women who have 
     gone before us
c. Grandmas! God's special gift within the family

May Beth is a wife, mother and active member of St. John the Evangelist Parish in Silver Spring, MD.  She is vice-president of Lumen Catechetical Consultants Inc., a not-for-profit religious educational consulting firm that helps Catholic organizations communicate a life with Christ lived fully through His Church.  She is a founder and the editor of the Lumen Publication, Life After Sunday, a small group discussion tool for parish life.

The weather forecast says something like "snow"!!  So if you cannot attend the retreat (or if you can!)  please pray that the Lord will send us a sunny day!  God bless you!
