Article by Aleteia writer Grace Stark: What happened when 9 women joined together to look immortality in the face
“A Catholic retreat in Colorado is helping women healing from cancer a chance to reflect on the deeper realities of life and death.”
We were privileged to receive the attention of Grace Stark, writer with Aleteia Magazine, an inspiring Catholic journal that covers news, culture, spirituality and the Catholic lifestyle. Grace had contacted us prior to the retreat but we did not want to alter the experience for the retreatants in any way by telling them that someone may want to interview them about the retreat. It was our first major retreat in Colorado and it was important that the experiences be pure.
After the retreat Grace provided us with a survey, which was sent to the retreatants. Grace took time to interview Sr. Anne Marie Walsh and I about the retreat and from the surveys and interviews, Grace has put together an inspiring story about what we all encountered in Christ at Mother Cabrini Shrine.
Please take a moment to read her article about our retreat. We are currently scheduling the next retreat for men and firming up the local cancer support group in Denver, Colorado. Peace and Blessings to you all.
