Houston Consecrated Women Give Young Women's Retreat

This past January 17-19th, the Consecrated Women of Regnum Christi organized a weekend retreat for young women in Huntsville, Texas. The retreat was split into two "tracks"- one for high school age girls and one for college students and up. The theme of the retreat was "Where is your heart taking you?" which encouraged all the participants to take a step back and allow their hearts to encounter the personal love of Jesus.  

Throughout the weekend the participants were given an opportunity to spend time together, go to confession and adoration, and experience the unconditional love of God through personal prayer.  By the end of the retreat many of the participants commented that they understood for the first time what it meant to encounter Jesus in a real way in prayer and bring that experience into daily life. Katie Purcell, one of the attendees, said "It was a blast meeting all the girls and getting the opportunity to spend more time with the consecrated.  I wish there were more retreats like this."
