Everyday is a gift from God and an invitation to respond with a resounding “yes”. Do you feel as if there is a “yes” inside of you waiting to be unleashed? Or maybe a gentle nudge from within telling you there is more out there to learn about, grow into and embrace? Join Christine Jurisich for a special day of reflection, sharing and prayer as we:

  • Learn about the many ways God speaks to us in everyday moments.

  • Grow in awareness on how to listen and be more attentive to God’s voice with your body, mind and soul while finding prayer practices that speak to your unique connection with God.

  • Reflect on your patterns of response (maybe fear? doubt? excitement?) when you get those “nudges”. We’ll look to Mary’s “yes” for guidance on this.

  • Discover new discernment methods that will help you make decisions in your life.

Listen to what past retreat participants have to say...

I thoroughly enjoyed this retreat! It came at a perfect time for me. I needed all of these good ideas and methods that I can take home and practice in my everyday life. Thank you Christine!

Before attending one of your retreats I felt disconnected to my faith and myself. The retreat restored my passion for the church, myself and God. I appreciated meeting women who were positive, inspiring and compassionate about saying yes to taking caring of themselves. Now I’m feeling less guilty for taking time out for myself and I’m learning to find a happy balance in my life with God.

I never miss these retreats because they give me the chance to take the time check in with how I’m living my life. They help me look into myself and life in relation to God’s place in it. Thank you!

Christine’s smile, faith-filled humble spirit, and great sense of humor about her own life struggles made everyone feel comfortable in sharing personal stories and innermost thoughts during both small and large group discussions. Everyone left the retreat feeling renewed and encouraged to continue doing God’s work!

I have been to a lot of retreats - I’ve always been very active at church and currently teach religious education - and this was the best retreat I have ever been to. In many ways it reminds me of a Cursillo experience- very moving. Your questions moved me and helped me see patterns in my life I hadn’t seen before.
