Retreat Speaker – Anne Jamieson

What better way to truly “taste and see the goodness of the Lord” than to focus on nurturing our faith? The September 2019 Women’s Fall Retreat will feature Anne Jamieson who is by vocation a wife and mother, by passion a cook and sometimes competitive baker, and by profession the Director of Catechesis for the Archdiocese of Hamilton, Ontario. Anne will lead us through a series of talks: Recipe for Faith: Choosing and Using the Best Ingredients.

Anne says, “We have all been invited to the potluck. Now, what recipe to make? When we think of our response to the Divine Invitation as choosing our recipe for faith, we can consider what Choosing and using the Best Ingredients looks like. We’ll consider what is fresh, fragrant and abundant and how to pass that on to others.”

See you at the table – and maybe bring a friend! The 2019 Women’s fall Retreat promises to be good food for the heart, mind, soul and strength!
