Women of All Saints
Registration is now open for the Women of All Saints Retreat at the Franciscan Retreat Center in Prior Lake. Spend part of your Lenten journey with fellow parishioners, friends and family on a spiritual retreat in a beautiful and serene place close to home. Our annual retreat weekend will include time for reflection, prayer and rest, all while enjoying the companionship of other women.
Embracing the Gift of the Eucharist
Mary and the Eucharist: Inseparable
We will welcome Janette Howe, who will speak about Embracing the Eucharist. There is so much more for us to learn and experience.
The Church consistently links the inseparable relationship between the holy Eucharist and Mary.
Her Popes have written about it, art has spoken a thousand words regarding it, and the clergy has wisely encouraged the faithful to simultaneously deepen devotion to both.
Together in reflection we will explore the strength of history, truth and beauty that assist in embracing and loving Our Eucharistic Lord and Our Lady.
The inspiration for Women of All Saints comes from a desire to engage women of all ages from the parish into a community of fellowship. With one or two events each year plus an annual weekend retreat women are invited to enjoy time together while deepening their awareness of God in their lives and the lives of others.
The hope is to become a vehicle in which women can share and express what they are looking for on their faith journeys through connecting and enhancing communications between existing women’s ministries and participants. “There are so many wonderful women’s groups at All Saints, and we thought that by them collaboratively working together, more opportunities could be provided for women to share in the joy, encouragement, and hope of Christ.”
An umbrella was chosen as the logo to be a reminder of the protection we have in Christ Jesus. The fabric was inspired by a section of stained glass in the St. Francis window in the Gathering Space of the church, complete with raindrops! “We are all walking in the reign of Jesus as is depicted by the wording, the cross and ‘J’ of the handle.”
