So that in joy, having come to you by the will of God, I may be refreshed with you.
— Romans 15:32

Refresh: A Women’s Retreat

Refreshing our souls, minds, and bodies

Friday, February 8, 2019, (5 pm) – Saturday, February 9, 2019 (3 pm)

Women of all ages are invited to attend an overnight retreat where we will take time to refresh our mind, body, and soul through workshops, respite, worship, and community at the beautiful Jesuit Spiritual Center in Milford, Ohio.

Everyone will have a private room in the Arrupe Retreat House. All meals and workshops are included.

Register online by January 21, 2019, at 8 am. There are still some rooms available. Invite a friend!

This is the first overnight women’s retreat that has been led by POP in many years; what an excellent opportunity to meet and to learn from other women, to relax and renew, and to take some time for YOU!
