Both Old and New Testaments contain stories of women who were instrumental in furthering the establishment of the Reign of God. They are meant to inspire us in our efforts to further the Reign of God in our time.

This retreat is a great opportunity for priests, deacons, women and men religious and everyone who wants to deepen into sacred scripture.
