“The teacher thus needs a basic education in dogma and asceticism. Apologetics is certainly also good, but the former seems more important to me: ready arguments, as right as they may be, often do not have penetrating force. But she whose soul is formed through the truths of faith — and I call this ascetic formation — finds words which are proper for this human being and for this moment respectively.” St Teresa Benedicta of the Cross (Essays on Woman)

The Women’s Apostolate to Youth conducts a twice-yearly series of Mother-Daughter retreats(for girls in grades 7-9). Each retreat includes talks and special activities (fun!), as well as opportunities for confession, adoration and Mass.
