Teresa Monaghen to present ‘Mary: Mother of Mercy’
WAVERLY (SNR) – Teresa Monaghen, a consecrated woman with the Apostolic Oblates and Pro Sanctity Movement, will lead a women’s retreat at Our Lady of Good Counsel Retreat House near Waverly May 6-7.
Monaghen has been a happily, perpetually, joyfully vowed member of the Apostolic Oblates and Pro Sanctity since 1989. She will share meaningful and simple ways of mercy, as the pathway to Heaven in daily life.
The retreat topic, “Mary: Mother of Mercy” includes lessons of love and mercy from Our Lady, Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta – who will be canonized this fall, St. John Paul II, St. Faustina and other ‘Saints of Mercy.’
The retreat is open to all women, young and old, married and single. It is in honor of Mary, Queen of Mercy during the holy month dedicated to Our Lady.
Father Gary Coulter, director of the retreat house, said it “would be a great Mother’s Day gift for the mother or grandmother in your life!”
There will be times of silence and sharing, opportunities for prayer and preparing in order to live ever more fully this Holy Year of Mercy.
Our Lady of Good Counsel Retreat House offers a peaceful atmosphere of prayer and recollection, situated on a spacious acreage near Waverly. The facility includes 50 single rooms, each with a private bath. Each retreat includes meditations by the retreat master, and opportunities for silence, prayer, adoration and the sacraments.
