“The joy of the gospel fills the hearts and lives of all who encounter Jesus. Those who accept his offer of salvation are set free from sin, sorrow, inner emptiness and loneliness. With Christ joy is constantly born anew.” -Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium 1
In addition to regular times of meeting, prayer, and retreat together, we have different events and activities in order to relax and be rejuvenated in the company and presence of our sisters. This could be something as simple as a game night or gathering around the holidays for a community meal.
It’s a great joy of to extend community life to family and friends. Families will often come to Mass & Breakfast on Saturday mornings. Each year community members and their families are invited for a Family Vacation Weekend – here are pictures from Bethpage 2016. Other events, like our recent Open House, allow us to connect with friends and neighbors.
On Saturday, March 11th we will have a Day of Prayer from 1-4pm for single women in and outside of community. We will gather at the Women Youth Apostle House and head into DC for the afternoon. The day will include time for personal reflection, common prayer, and a talk with a focus on discernment. If interested in joining us, please contact Krysti (firstname.lastname@example.org).
