The themes of this retreat will be the Blessed Virgin Mary and the writings of St. Francis de Sales. St. Francis de Sales' book, Introduction to the Devout Life, was written for the laity and has been a blessing to many, through the centuries, in their walk with Jesus.
"Be still and know that I am God." Psalm 46:10
