Reflection Day of Prayer

The first Reflection Day of Prayer in 2012 at the Mount Saint Joseph Conference and Retreat Center started the new theme “Women in Scripture: How Do We Relate?” The topic for January was “Women in Genesis” and 12 women took part in the discussion, led by Sister Ann McGrew, executive director of the Center.

The Reflection Days are the first Friday of every month, except July, and last from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The cost is $15, which includes lunch. The next Reflection Day is Feb. 3, on “Women of Exodus, Judges and Kings.”
