On Tuesday, February 28 from 9 am–1 pm or from 7-9 pm, Our Lady of Calvasry Retreat Center presents “Women & Spirit: Catholic Sisters in America.”
Come and explore the mystery behind a small group of innovative American women who helped shape the nation’s social and cultural landscape. Meet women who corresponded with President Thomas Jefferson, talked down bandits and roughnecks, lugged pianos into the wilderness, and provided the nation’s first health insurance to Midwestern loggers.
Discover sisters’ courage during the Civil War, the Gold Rush, the San Francisco Earthquake, the Influenza Epidemic, the Civil Rights Movement, and Hurricane Katrina. This program will include a showing of the “Women & Spirit” film with a facilitated discussion and time of sharing and prayer.
Our Lady of Calvary Retreat Center is located at 31 Colton Street in Farmington. A $25 offering is requested for the day program, which includes lunch, or $15 for the evening program. Both are open to women and men. Advance registration is appreciated. For more information, please call the Retreat Center at (860) 677-8519, or visit their website at www.ourladyofcalvary.com.
