GREEN BAY, Wis., June 5, 2018 /Christian Newswire/ -- This summer, Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity offer a diversity of discernment opportunities specially designed for Single Young Adult Catholic Women. Retreats, held at the serene and prayerful environs of Holy Family Convent on Silver Lake in Northeast Wisconsin, include:
Discernment of Spirits (based on St. Ignatius Discernment principles)
I Believe in the Communion of Saints Retreat
Action of God in Our Lives (A silent retreat)
"What I Long For with All My Heart" Retreats (individual retreat schedule at your convenience)
Women are also invited to join the sisters for their Mini-Camino Pilgrimage, and the class "Introduction to St. Bonaventure."
Reflecting on the genesis of Discernment of Spirits Retreat, Presenter Sr. Jacqueline Spaniola, OSF said "Young women told me 'I wish I had some quiet time that I would be able to really discern God's Will.' That first Retreat was so fruitful that we began to offer it more often because they saw how they were able to see patterns in their own life, and now be able to discern daily things as well as discernment of God's will for more important issues."
Past attendees have recommended the value of such retreats, commenting in evaluations: "I really loved learning the rules of discernment and having tangible ways of knowing what is from God" and "I really enjoyed how we were part of the Motherhouse and see how they live. Having that experience is wonderful."
