I want to bring to everyone's attention the REFLECT Retreat that will be held at the Cardinal Stritch retreat house in Mundelein, from Friday June 29th to Sunday July 1st. REFLECT retreats are for single Catholics in their 30s, 40s and 50s (beyond the "Young Adult" group age of most parishes/dioceses). REFLECT began in Michigan with a group of singles just like us, trying to meet their spiritual needs as they came into this age group, a demographic that is so often ignored by Church ministry.
If you have ever said to yourself "there is not group for ME" this is your chance.
I went to their first Chicago retreat last year, and it was an amazing weekend. The weekend is faciliated by your peers, the Reflect team, who share some really amazing faith struggles and stories, and you will be changed by what you hear, and by what the Holy Spirit leads you to. You can meet others "in your same situation" and be inspired about where you are in life, and where do you go from here.
Mundelein is beautiful, if you have never had the chance to take a retreat there, this is your chance!
Everyone is so nice, and you will not feel alone as a single over the age of 30 after you attend a retreat like this. I highly recommend it! If anyone wants more details you can send me a private message and I can fill you in.
There is also a similar retreat but in Michigan in July if you prefer a road trip (see website for details).
