Online Retreats for Young Catholic Women Offered by Franciscan Sisters

Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity will offer online Zoom Retreats in May and June for Catholic single women, 20-32. The retreats have been developed for the particular needs and desires for college students, recent graduates, and those discerning a call to consecrated life or professional career decision. Women from anywhere in the United States are welcome to register.

 These silent, guided retreats will be led by Sr. Jackie Spaniola OSF, Pastoral Associate Minister at St. Albert the Great Campus Ministry, Michigan Technological University, and previously Director of Religious Education of the Green Bay Diocese.

Sr. Jackie reflected that " As we all know the situation with Coronavirus abruptly changed our daily routine.… Decisions had to be made in every area of campus ministry and parish life. Everyone scrambled to learn video chat programs online to stay in touch with parishioners and to continue ministries. After discussing the issue with Fr. Ben Hasse, I was online learning about ZOOM chatrooms."

The next Retreats will be May 23-25 and June 19-22. Retreats are open to a limited number of retreatants. For more information or to register, please visit
