“The Liberated Heart” with Sr. Joyce Rupp, OSM

March 4 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

The Liberated Heart – Day Retreat with Sr. Joyce Rupp, O.S.M.

Cost: $50 (includes lunch)

Spiritual liberation involved affirmation and acceptance of the enduring quality of one’s core goodness. It also requires a recognition of personal obstacles and the choice to become free from interior barriers that limit spiritual growth. This retreat day focuses on an in-depth approach to becoming a more whole human being, one whose vision and way of life becomes ever more transparent and Gospel-oriented. This inner freedom leads to an expansion of compassion and to dwelling in fuller harmony with both self and the larger world.

Come and restore your joy, peace, and passion for life.

The day includes communal prayer, presentations by Joyce, quiet times of reflection and opportunity for small group dialogue.


Joyce Rupp is well known for her work as a writer, international retreat leader, and conference speaker. She is the author of Praying Our GoodbyesOpen the Door, and Fly While You Still Have Wings.
