Spiritual Spa Day
Sister Margaret Kerry shares how a group of women organized a special day-long retreat. She explains, "A spiritual spa day is a sacred space set aside to rest in the Lord, receive graces, support, strength, and inspiration from others. Women need these times to love and be loved by God so that their gift of self emanates from Christ the life-giving vine."
