Gretna parish plans women’s Lenten reflection

GRETNA (SNR) – A women’s Lenten reflection day will be held March 24 at St. Patrick’s Parish Center, 508 W. Angus St., Gretna.

The event is titled “I Thirst- Responding to Christ with Mary,” and the keynote speaker is Kris McGregor, known for the Discerning Hearts ministry, and from Spirit Catholic Radio’s morning show, which she co-hosted with her husband Bruce. They continue to serve as guests hosts.

Kris is the founder and executive director of Discerning Hearts, a non-profit apostolate dedicated to evangelization and spiritual formation through new media – podcasts, radio broadcasts and publications faithful to the teachings of the Church.

In November, McGregor spoke at a Vatican Symposium in Rome on the writings of Adrienne von Speyr and the Mystery of Mary.

The Lenten event will be held from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., with a free continental breakfast at 8 a.m.  There is no registration required and no charge to attend, but a free-will offering will be accepted.

The event will include prayer and song, two talks, and Eucharistic adoration and Exposition.
