Stay at Home Silent Holy Spirit Retreat for Young Adults

May 09, 2020

With the Coronavirus and the “stay-at-home” policy people are not able to go to a silent retreat at a retreat house. Instead, Franciscan Sister of Christian Charity Sister Jacqueline Spaniola would like to bring the retreat to you in your own home.

This retreat will be a silent guided retreat over ZOOM. You might be asking how is that possible?
