If you are a birthmother who has experienced adoption...open, closed, a recent placement, a placement many years ago...we hope you will consider coming to this retreat. 

Sometimes the most difficult decisions or our lives are the most blessed. For a single or vulnerable woman to lovingly offer her newborn child through adoption to a married couple longing to be an expanded family is an act of deep faith and selfless love.

It leaves in the heart of the birthmother a mixture of joy and sadness, certainty and doubt. This retreat is an opportunity for birthmothers to come together in a spirit of prayer and support, seeking God's continued grace on them and the children whom they have gifted with life. 
-- Msgr Frank Rossi, Pastor of St. Michael's Catholic Church.

The retreat will be held at the Cenacle, 420 N. Kirkwood Rd.  To register or for more information call 713-874-6760 or email ckitowski@catholiccharities.org

Are you suffering as you are you are caring for someone else? Maybe you feel like crying and calling your mom to help you like when you were a little child. Come to your Mother. Imitate Mother Mary as you meditate in your heart on the mysteries of redemptive suffering. She is the nurse par excellence who will teach you compassion. She will intercede to Jesus for the transformation of your love as she prompted the miraculous change at Cana. After all, Jesus died for you, and your loved ones, and he rose from the dead. Alleluia!

Presented by Fr. David Bergeron who comes from Quebec, the French province of Canada. Since becoming a priest with the Companions of the Cross, he has been blessed to serve God through missions in countries such as Haiti, Phillipines, Mexico, Peru and Paraguay. He has been based in Houston since his priestly ordination 5 years ago. On his day off, when he is not a fisher of men, he likes to do kayak fishing while enjoying the beauty of creation. His deepest desire in life is to lead all in being "united in prayer and mission."

$30 per person by August 1 (includes lunch) $35 after August 1.
