The Young Women of Grace "Dare to Prepare" retreat is a day of Advent reflection for teen girls ages 12+ that includes Mass, social time, games, and a very special Christmas craft/gift.
Susan Brinkmann, OCDS, co-author of Young Women of Grace: Embrace Your Femininity, will give two presentations: "Say Hello to Emmanuel – the God With You" which teaches girls how to practice the presence of God in their everyday lives, and; "The 'Yes' That Changed the World" which explains Mary's role in the Redemption and the critical role women play in the world today through the gift of their unique feminine genius.
A local youth minister will also address the girls on the importance of respecting themselves in the way they dress and relate to themselves and others. This day includes a light breakfast, pizza for lunch, and lots of homemade Christmas cookies & treats!
