Mother's Day Retreat for Wives of Deacons.

FRIDAY - SUNDAY | JUNE 15-17 | 2018 La Salette Retreat and Conference Center 947 Park Street, Attleboro, MA 02703 Retreatants will examine and reflect on the identity and role of a Deacon's wife. Jesus asks: "Who do you say that I am?" Who are you? Husbands and wives are joined in the Sacred Bond of Matrimony. The husband is called by God to ordination… and the wife? What is her role and model? Come reflect and pray over these questions. Minimum number of participants for the retreat to take place: 20. Registration and $80 deposit required. Starting time: Friday, June 15 @ 7:00pm Ending time: Sunday, June 17 @ 2:00pm. Suggested donation: $225 per person.
