Ursuline Sister Cheryl Clemons brings her popular spring women’s retreat back to Maple Mount from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., April 30, 2022.
“Living in the Power of the Holy Spirit” is the theme of this year’s retreat day, which will be held in the Mount Saint Joseph Auditorium. During the Easter season, Christians joyfully celebrate the gifts of Life and Hope flowing from the Risen Jesus. But how do 21st-century believers access first-century gifts? The link — the channel — is the Holy Spirit.
One of the most important Western Catholic witnesses to the role of the Spirit in Christian life is Saint Hildegard of Bingen, a 12th-century German Benedictine nun and the fourth woman Doctor of the Church. We will explore her insights about the power of the Holy Spirit. The day will include prayer, reflection and small-group sharing.
The $45 fee includes lunch. For those who wish, a Sunday Mass will be available at 4:15 p.m.
Sister Cheryl, who holds a doctorate in historical theology-systematics from The Catholic University of America, has been offering retreats, parish missions and RCIA programs for more than 25 years. This is being offered by the Mount Saint Joseph Retreat Ministry, Maple Mount, Ky.
