Mother-Daughter Retreat - September 26, 2015


Dear Mothers and Daughters,

The Women’s Apostolate to Youth cordially invites you to a Mother-Daughter Retreat  (for girls in grades 7-9) devoted to reflecting on God’s plan for your life.  

 Young women today are faced with many conflicting messages and choices about what will make them happy now and in the future.  But when they come to understand the true vocation of woman, they are equipped to discern the difference between truth and falsehood in the messages they hear and the choices set before them.

Join us for this wonderful opportunity to forge a stronger bond between the two of you by sharing and deepening your devotion to the great Archangel chosen by God to announce to the Blessed Virgin Mary her own special role in God’s great plan of salvation for the world.  The retreat includes talks, and special activities (fun!), as well as opportunities for confession, adoration and Mass.

DATE/TIME: Saturday, September 26. Registration & Continental Breakfast      begins at 8:30am; talks begin at 9:00am. 

LOCATION: St. Raymond of Penafort Church 8750 Pohick Rd., Springfield, VA 22153

COST:  $50 For Mother and Daughter inclusive.  Includes materials, breakfast, and lunch.  (The fee also covers clergy stipends & the rental fee for the facility.)  $15 is charged for a 2nd daughter. 

ACTIVITY:   Please bring a 4 x 6 inch photo of your daughter’s First Holy Communion for our retreat craft (about 4 x 4 of it will be exposed). 

RSVP: Please email DaystarRetreat@gmail.com in order to register.
