Young professional women are invited to a Lenten retreat hosted by Opus Dei, a prelature of the Catholic Church. The retreat will last from March 20 at 7:30 p.m. to March 22 at 3:30 p.m.

The weekend-long event will be in keeping with the spirit of Opus Dei’s founder, St. Josemaria Escriva, who said that a time of recollection is necessary in order to “know God, to know yourself, and thus to make progress. A necessary time for discovering where and how you should change your life.”

The retreat will include meditations, talks, and quite time for prayer. Spiritual direction and confession will also be available. The retreat will encourage silence and reflection between scheduled talks.

The retreat is located at the Holiday Inn, 14299 Firestone Blvd., La Mirada. For more information and to register for the event, please contact Lisa Limtiaco at (650) 799-4201 or [email protected].
