Fulfillment of Faith
Prepare yourself for the Advent season with this special, one-night retreat November 6th – November 7th hosted by the Catholic Conference Center.
The highlight of this retreat will feature dramatic presentations from Faith: A Mother’s Story performed by Olivia Woodford, founder of Bible Women Speak. Participants will explore their faith in God and the presence of miracles in their lives with an exploration of the events that led to Jesus’ birth and the faith of those who played a role in God’s promise being fulfilled.
Retreat will include discussion of the presentation and related scripture readings, as well as time dedicated to prayer, reflection, and/or journaling.
Faith: A Mother’s Story
A joy-filed and soulful performance to get you ready for the Advent Season. The events of the first Christmas come to life through the eyes of the women who were around Mary: her mother Anne; her cousin Elizabeth; Leah of the House of David; a shepherdess; and Anna, a Seeress in the Temple.
As these women encounter events and the mystery of Jesus’ coming, they face doubt, disbelief and ultimately joy as their faith is renewed in God, life and themselves.
The discounted price is $150 per person, $275 per couple. This includes overnight lodging, three full-course meals prepared by our own executive chef, all materials, and fees for our expert presenter… plus access to our beautiful facilities, trails, and outdoor meditation areas.
