Retreat Schedule


In the Catholic tradition, it is customary to make an annual retreat.
Due to the great interest of women for retreats hosted by the Sisters of Life,we ask that you attend only one retreat
during our retreat season from September through June. Thank you!

On this retreat, you will be introduced to methods of praying in the tradition of St. Ignatius of Loyola. Fr.
