On Site: Offered as an overnight retreat (Friday evening to Saturday evening) or as a evening and daytime conference that does not include an overnight. Also offered as a parish mission on three consecutive evenings. Any option includes time for personal prayer and reflection, Eucharistic adoration, and community support and sharing. We like to include the ministry of local permanent deacons to offer Eucharistic adoration as part of the experience. With more than 10 years experience offering retreats, Mary draws individuals and groups to spiritual growth and active service. Invite her to present a retreat or conference at your parish.
On Line: This five-week formation experience meets once a week in an online virtual environment. Sessions are supported with weekly reading, prayer and activies. Participants will benefit from buying the Spirit Alive: Participants workbook for $10 + shipping, or the Spirit Alive: Leaders guide for $30 + shipping if they want to facilitate a group in their parish. These resources includes a unique spiritual gifts inventory. The $30 registration fee can be paid through PayPal or by check.
