Women’s Retreat – a retreat for women

Description:

We are a diverse group of women from all walks of life, open to the working of the Holy Spirit, who come together to utilize our personal gifts in an effort to create a retreat weekend experience that will enrich the lives of the women who attend.  It is our calling to maintain the integrity of the women’s retreat by keeping true to our Catholic faith, and loving one another with God’s unconditional love.

Activities & Events:

The Annual St. Francis Women’s Retreat is held the last full weekend in February of every year at Bergamo Center in Beavercreek.  It is open to all women, college age and older. We provide a place for women to experience and respond to the love of God. We assure the women who attend of their value in this world and in God’s plan.  We encourage them in their vocations and in their struggles We help to renew their strength and faith.

Time Commitment:

Approximately  8-12 meetings are held beginning in October and running through February until the retreat weekend begins.  After the retreat we have one follow up meeting to go over the results of the evaluations filled out by the attendees.  Currently, the meetings are held on Saturday mornings because that best fits everyone’s schedule. Meeting times are open to change depending on availability.  

Helpful Attributes:

Anyone who feels called to serve in the Women’s Retreat Ministry can speak to the current Team Director.  Prospective members are: Prayerful, Loving, Affirming, Compassionate, Supportive of the MIssion, Coachable, Trustworthy to complete their assignments, Committed to attend meetings, and are Team Players who put their own agendas aside.   Team leadership roles are limited,  but subcommittee volunteers are always welcome (wherever your interest lies) which may grow into leadership roles.   We welcome any help on the actual retreat weekend!
