Spring Women’s Retreat: Martha and Mary March 16-18
“Essential Questions: What Martha and Mary Can Teach Us” is the theme of a March 16-18 spring women's retreat at Mount Saint Joseph Conference and Retreat Center (located 12 miles west of Owensboro, Ky., on Hwy. 56). Most discussions of these two Gospel women focus on the frazzled worker Martha compared to her quiet, prayerful sister Mary. We will consider these stories from a different approach. During presentations that peel back the layers of the Gospel stories, quiet reflection, group sharing and celebration of the sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist, retreatants will explore the links between Mary and Martha and their own lives. The retreat leader is Ursuline Sister Cheryl Clemons, Vice President for Academic Affairs/Academic Dean for Brescia University in Owensboro. The $180 fee includes meals and accommodations. Commuters can attend for $130. Take 10 percent off if paid in full by Feb. 16. To register, contact Kathy McCarty, 270-229-0206 or e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots.
