The mission of the St. Philomena Mother Daughter Retreat is to help participants grow closer to Christ and one another while exploring God’s gift of femininity. Based on biblical wisdom, Catholic teaching, and Pope St. JPII’s Theology of the Body, the retreat offers talks and activities geared towards girls ages 11-14. Quality mother-daughter time and opening pathways for discussing what it means to be a girl in today’s world are key objectives.

Titled “The Gift”, participants reflect on the gift of their female identity, the gift of friendship, the gifts of marital intimacy and holy chastity, the gift of the Holy Spirit and most importantly the precious gifts they are created to be.
