Talk to your pastor about attending the Diaconate Discernment Retreat to be held at St. Anthony Spirituality Center, and then call the Office for Ministries and Social Concerns at 608-791-0161. A new deacon formation class will begin in the fall of 2019 and attendance at the Discernment Retreat is a prerequisite.

Come join other high school women for a weekend retreat designed to help you come to a deeper understanding of God's call for your life. Join the Sisters in prayer, fellowship, activities, and Mass. Attendance does not imply that a girl is in the discernment process.

This weekend is just to find out what the life is all about while growing in prayer and having some fun.
