Women’s Welcome Renewal

Do you sense that something’s missing in your life?  Do you feel that if you weren’t so busy you would be happier, healthier, more effective, more fulfilled, and maybe even a better person?  Come to the:

Women’s Welcome Renewal Retreat

Saturday, April 17th    7:15 a.m. – 9:30 p.m.

St. James Church and Parish Center

We will start with 7:30 a.m. Mass, then walk to the Parish Center for a day filled with divinely-inspired spiritual nourishment and sisterly fellowship.  We hope you plan to “come and see” how the Lord works in each of our lives.  Make this a spring gift to yourself – a special time for reflection and for feeling loved!

Cost for the day is $40.00.  Individually-packaged lunch and dinner from local vendors are provided.   

COVID Safety notes – We will follow the Archdiocese of Chicago COVID guidelines, including:

  • Collecting a COVID screening form and checking temperatures upon arrival.
  • Maintaining a maximum of 50 persons in our spacious Parish Center, with its new air-purification system.
  • Maintaining 6-feet social distance, mask wearing, and hand sanitizing.
  • Honoring the current State and Archdiocesan policies that require self-quarantine for 10 days after travel.  As such, we ask that if your personal travel plans will take you out of state between April 6th and 16th, that you do not register at this time.
