Restore, Women's Healing Retreat - You Are Made New
skip to Main Content

Restore: return to its original condition; return what was lost, stolen, or taken away.

Friday May 21 and Saturday May 22

Shrine of St. Therese of Lisieux
Nesquehoning, PA

And after you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will Himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. – 1 Peter 5:10

Dignity.  Beauty.  Wholeness.

God longs for us to believe that we indeed are who He says we are: His beloved daughters, carefully created, infinitely loved and valued beyond measure. In His perfect sight, He sees so clearly our inherent dignity, beauty, and wholeness.  And yet, here amidst the din of distortion, lie-based beliefs and the darkening caused by sin and trauma, we struggle to experience the Truth of who we are. Our pain and woundedness distort the lens through which we look at ourselves, others and the circumstances of our lives.

Come…and let Him Restore you!
