Jesus And The Women Of The Gospels: Traveling Together On The Path Of Discipleship

Director: Sr. Wendy Cotter, CSJ
This retreat focuses on the significance of Jesus’ encounters with women in various accounts of the gospels, as well as when they are featured in Jesus’ parables and wisdom sayings. The retreat will conclude with the special place women disciples hold in the Resurrection narratives, their mandate to proclaim Him as risen, and what this holds for our role today!
