Intercommunity Sisters' Retreat
Touched by the Holy: Women in Watercolor
Sr. Clare D'Auria, OSF

This retreat invites religious sisters from any and every community to explore the stories of several New Testament women who encountered Jesus at significant junctures in their own life journeys. We will pray with these women who were tenderly touched by the Holy One. In doing so, we meet the Jesus who, without judgement, can lead each of us to a place of balance, integration, healing, and wholeness by honoring the unique gift of who we are, namely, “God's Work of Art.” (Eph 2:10)


Personal Spiritual Direction will be available.
