Retreat - "Joyful, Sorrowful, and Glorious: Praying the Mysteries of our Lives"

Fri Oct 13th, 2017 7 pm to Sat Oct 14th, 2017 3 pm
At St. Teresa Residence Hall

Joyful, Sorrowful, and Glorious: Praying the Mysteries of our Lives

Presented by Madalene M. Stafford, MS

Using the framework of the ancient prayer form, the Rosary, this retreat will help participants identify the joyful, sorrowful and glorious experiences of their lives, and see how these contribute to their unique soul-print. It will address ways to pray authentically in the changing seasons of our lives, exploring awareness of blessing, brokenness and healing, and how the experience of gift invites us, in turn, to become givers.
