Registration open for Advent Women's Retreat!

Sister Kathryn Hermes is coming back to Chicago!
This year, the Advent Women's Retreat will be based on HeartWork, a new process of spiritual growth developed by Sister Kathryn.

Join us Dec. 7, from 8:30-3:00 for an Advent retreat day with John the Baptist, King David and St. Joseph that will lead you to a place of rest using the simple tools and exercises of HeartWork--practices you can take with you and continue at home. As in past years, the retreat will be held at St. Peter's in the Loop (downtown Chicago). Doors open at 8:15.

Register through the bookstore (call us at 312-346-4228 or drop in), or register online. Through the bookstore, we can accept Visa/MasterCard, personal checks and cash. Online accepts all major credit cards. The $40 fee (50% discount for religious sisters and students) includes coffee/donuts and a boxed lunch. (As requested, we'll try to have more salad and fruit options this year.)

Sister Kathryn Hermes is a Daughter of St Paul and author of the best-selling "Surviving Depression: A Catholic Approach" (and  its accompanying Journal) "Beginning Contemplative Prayer," "Making Peace with Yourself," and other spirituality books. Sister holds a Master's in Theological Studies and an advanced certificate in Scripture. She is currently Director of Electronic Publishing for Pauline Books & Media, Boston.
