 QUIET DAY OF PERSONAL PRAYER

Call (781-585-2460) to make arrangements – you’re welcome almost any day!
Cost: $26 – lunch included

Many have discovered what a special place Miramar is, however their schedules don’t permit them to return as often as their souls yearn to.  So, fit in personal time of retreat based on your schedule.  Many weekdays and weekend days are available for you to come to Miramar on your own and enjoy the sacred space, inside and outside.  You’re most welcome to call Mary-Fran, our Registrar, and ask about dates.


 


 

Grief Recovery Seminar

Sat. March 16, 9-12 noon

Please join Reverend Edward Tetteh, SVD, for a time of sharing and a search for understanding. Just as grief enters all of our lives, we all need to take time to heal in the peace of Miramar.  While we are a Catholic retreat center, you do not need to be Catholic to come — or to heal.

If you register by March 9, the fee is only $35, lunch included, or $25 if you wish to depart before lunch. After March 9, the cost is $40 with lunch included, $30 without lunch.
