St. Stanislaus Catholic Church, 709 J Street, Modesto, California, in partnership with Possibility Productions, will host A Retreat for the Feminine Heart – A Catholic Women’s Retreat, featuring the ministry and music of His Own, Saturday, Oct 14, 9am – 4pm.
Daughters, Mothers and Grandmothers of Central and Northern California, from far and wide, are invited to attend A Retreat for the Feminine Heart. Fellow CatholicMom contributor, author and inspirational speaker Christine Watkins will join us as our Master of Ceremonies.
Catholic musicians and lay evangelists, Kara Klein, Maria Spears and Christine Simpson, founded His Own to combine their love for Jesus, passion for music, and desire to proclaim the joy of the feminine heart.
“In a world where women are exploited, misused and misguided, it is the mission of His Own to inspire women to come before the Lord as they are, to encounter His unique love for them, and to be reminded of the eternal measure of their feminine dignity and worth.” – His Own
In addition to inspiring personal testimonies, music, praise & worship, adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, Reconciliation, and Mass, keynote topics will include:
- Picture Perfect – Today’s battle against perfection and poor body image and finding self-acceptance in the love of Christ.
- Why Are We Genius Anyway? – Understanding the dignity, vocation and role of woman, as taken from St. John Paul the Great’s “The Genius of Women” and “Mulieris Dignitatem.” Unpacking the great power and responsibility of women in the world, and how to live authentic femininity.
- Give Yourself Away – Discussing the challenge of today’s narcissistic notions through Christ’s words that it is in “losing our life that we find it” (Matt 10:39). Finding the fullness of joy through becoming women of service and gratitude, through learning to embrace life fully and love others freely in every moment, and to trust radically in the goodness of God, despite the circumstances around us.
