SISTERS IN CHRIST, YOU ARE CORDIALLY INVITED TO SPEND A WEEKEND WITH US
Gift yourself the weekend with our loving Christ, returning home with your “Fire Within” burning a little stronger and brighter.
October 6-8, 2017
Mount St Mary’s University, 16300 Old Emmitsburg Rd., Emmitsburg, MD 21727
One in communion with her Beloved (Christ) is a beacon to all. Her “Fire Within” is from the Holy Spirit. We are called to ignite that fire of faith through prayer and living the Gospels. Our prayer life correlates to our true quality of life.
Come for a weekend to be refreshed and renewed, to allow God to call your soul closer to Him, to allow Him to light or enkindle the “Fire Within” your soul. Come let go of the stresses of the world so to allow God to speak directly to your soul.
Learn about how St John Paul II taught that we were formed for holiness, from Sister Helena Burns. Become refreshed discovering who God has really revealed himself to be and what His mission is for our life, from Jon Leonetti. Learn from the extraordinary lives of the saints and how their lives weren’t so different from how we’re called to live.
