Far from being a liability, receptivity is an essential attribute for human flourishing and a direct link to our participation in God’s creation. Women have a particular excellence in receptivity that bears celebration and exploration. Please join Liz Kelly, and your friends at Nazareth Retreat Center, for a weekend of reflection and recollection on ways we can strengthen our natural ability to receive well and generously, that we might be nourished for our critically important work in the world. Opportunities to attend Mass in the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth’s St. Vincent Church will be provided. Please note that registration for this retreat will only be open to women.
