Notre Dame Retreat House News

LADIES RETREAT

The Notre Dame Retreat House has regretfully had to cancel the Women’s Retreat that was scheduled for May 1 - 3 this year.  They are hoping to reschedule for a later date but of course right now they are in a holding pattern, as we all are.

We will keep you posted on any new dates. You can also check on line at their website www.notredameretreat.org . You can go to any Women’s retreat that is listed. You do not have to go on the weekend that is designated to St. Mark’s parish. Just contact them direct to make a reservation.

The Retreat House is a beautiful place to reflect and pray. They of course, have been hit financially as all our Churches have. If you would like to make a monetary donation, we know it would be greatly appreciated. They are praying for us and ask that we also pray for them.

Stay tuned. Stay Healthy. Stay home!
