HNOJ WOMEN’S RETREAT 2018

Christ the King Retreat House, Buffalo, MN

November 9-11, 2018

This year’s annual women’s retreat will take place Nov. 9-11 at Christ the King Retreat House in Buffalo, MN.

HNOJ, in conjunction with Christ the King Retreat House, is happy to offer a weekend of renewal – with the theme Be Patient in Affliction - to the women of this parish, as well as any female friends and relatives who might wish to participate.

Patience is one of the fruits of the Holy Spirit, a gift that we are called to cultivate in our daily lives. It can be difficult to do this, especially in the midst of affliction, which presents itself throughout our lives in many painful ways. Our challenge is to look for the hand of God in every difficulty and find the seeds of new life that emerge. Pope Francis reminds us, “God is patient. God knows how to wait…” And so must we.

Join us at the King’s House this special weekend to receive encouragement intended to help us deepen our patience, especially in times of trial, so that no matter what’s going on in our lives, we can surrender to the love of God, be refreshed in spirit, and walk in the light of Christ.
