OLW Women! Join us for the Archdiocesan Council of Catholic Women Pre-Lenten Morning of Reflection
In February 2019 the Archdiocesan Council of Catholic Women (ACCW) Vicariate 1 hosted its first Pre-Lenten Morning of Reflection, “Escape from the Darkness”. Since this retreat, the community of women in prayer has grown immeasurably experiencing the power of prayer in ways we never imagined.
With 125 women in attendance, we were thrilled with the enthusiastic response for a first-time event. We were humbled and encouraged by the comments on the evaluation sheets, and knew this is what the Catholic women in our community needed to enhance their spirituality. Fr. Benedict’s reflections, together with Sharon Pawula’s guided meditation, struck a chord in so many.

Fr John Kartje, Mundelein Seminary Rector is our reflection leader. If you have not met Fr Kartje, I encourage you to view him on YouTube or Google him. He is a remarkable speaker with a demeanor that is straightforward and approachable. He also knows what he’s talking about with Ph.D. in Astrophysics from U.C. (prior to priesthood) and a Ph.D in Sacred Theology. A rector of the seminary, he has immersed himself in the local Catholic community and developed a strong following.
We want you to join us again this year for our Pre-Lenten Morning of Reflection! Our goal is to double the number of attendees, so bring a friend or two! You can register by downloading this registration form or through Signup Genius. RSVP Deadline is Monday, February 10th.
We look forward to seeing you February!
Come Holy Spirit living in Mary
