Come and See Retreats and Retreats for Young Women

Come and see what religious life is all about. Any woman 18-30 is invited to learn more about religious life and deepen her spirituality. The weekend includes prayer, sacraments, conferences and times to speak individually to a sister.

Any individual or group is welcome to schedule a visit with us on dates other than those listed at retreat weekends. During such a time, the visitor(s) would follow the schedule of the Sisters, praying, working and studying with us, with ample opportunities for questions and discussions on discernment.

Come to the Mary, Mother and Guide retreat for single women, which will deepen your spiritual life by walking in the footsteps of Mary, our Model and Guide. The weekend will include prayer, sacraments, and conferences.

We are also free for scheduled visits for individuals or groups. You pick the date and bring yourself and perhaps some friends. We’ll provide the place and the spiritual guidance. Personally scheduled retreats can have a Marian or discernment theme, or can just be a time to live, work, pray and play with the Sisters.

These events will be held at the IHM Motherhouse, Wichita, Kansas.
