Called To Joy
Calling ALL women! With Lent around the corner, many of us are focused on setting goals for the 40 days leading up to Easter. Then what? Consider making the most of this Easter season by setting aside a half-day to explore the concept of joy. Holy Name of Jesus will be hosting a women’s retreat led by Mighty is Her Call on Saturday, April 15, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. The cost is $45. Scholarships are available. Breakfast and lunch are both included.
Mighty is Her Call (MIHC) is a fast-growing Catholic women’s ministry based in Dallas, Texas. Their ministry primarily works to support and nourish mothers in their vocation, but the focus isn’t as narrow as one might think. At HNOJ, we are inviting all women ages 22-102 to come together. This retreat will not cater to a specific age or life-stage; instead, we hope to provide an intergenerational retreat experience where we can embrace our shared identity as Daughters of God. As MIHC describes the retreat experience, “It’s a chance for you to reflect on the importance of your vocation, to relax and to remember just how powerful, meaningful and Christ-filled your life is.”
“I have attended two Mighty is Her Call retreats, and I found them to be tremendously impactful. They were immersed in the Sacraments – with Mass, Confession and Adoration all included in the day. Each included three unique speakers whose content built on the previous talk while being deeply personal to the woman speaking. By the end of the day, I connected with women at my table – both old friends and new faces – feeling encouraged and challenged to grow. I left refreshed and excited and knew that this was an experience I wanted to offer to as many women as possible. I am thrilled to bring MIHC to Holy Name of Jesus and I know it will bless the women of this parish.” – Angie Paske
