Join us this Lent in a Retreat following the Passion, Death and Resurrection of Jesus as it was experienced by women. This retreat will focus on more than Mary, the Mother of God and Mary Magdalene, to look at peripheral characters like Pilate's wife and the maidservant at the house of the High Priest. All of these reflections will, we hope, help you to experience a closeness with Jesus in his Passion throughout the season of Lent.
