2019 Fall Women's Retreat: Liturgy of the Ordinary

Sorry, we have met our capacity of participants for the Women's Retreat.


November 1 & 2 --  Friday at 7 PM to Saturday at 5 PM

At St. Mary's of the Lake Conference Center in Mundelein, IL

Please join us November 1 and 2 for the re-boot of our annual women’s retreat. The theme of the retreat is Liturgy of the Ordinary. The retreat is based on the book by the same title, by Tish Harrison Warren. We will walk through typical activities of an ordinary day, from waking until going to bed, and reveal how a simple act like brushing your teeth, responding to email, or sitting in traffic is connected to a spiritual practice, and our Sunday worship. Through education, discussion, and the creative workshop, you will find amazing grace in your every day.


Please contact Mari Leonard at mari.leonard@comcast.net


We will stay at the Conference Center on the campus of the University of St. Mary in Mundelein, IL, an hour’s drive north of Evanston. The 930-acre campus includes woods, walking trails, and a three-mile road around St. Mary’s Lake.
