THE MADONNA RETREAT & conference CENTER

 

 

Presents “AMAZING GRACE, AMAZING LOVE”

 

A Lenten Retreat for women MARCH 16, 2019 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM

 

 Followed by a TEA PARTY 3:15 - 5:00 PM

 

ABOUT THE MADONNA RETREAT & conference CENTER

The Madonna Retreat Center is owned by the Archdiocese of Santa Fe and is nestled in a corner of the St. Pius X campus in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  We host more than 7,000 guests a year at our center.

 

The building is a repurposed dormitory that boasts 50 bedrooms, two conference rooms with breathtaking views of the mountains, a guest kitchen, and an adoration chapel available 24/7.

 

Why not make a weekend of it?

Join us for a time of quiet reflection on Friday night.  We will treat you to a continental breakfast. 

Or consider staying Saturday night so you can watch the sunrise over the Sandia Mountains from our balcony.

 

About our tea party

 We offer a discounted youth rate to help families and parishes offer life-changing experiences to our teens and young adults.  Among these are teen confirmation retreats, Lobo retreats, and youth mission trips. 

 

To offset these discounts, we are having our second fundraiser Tea Party on March 16, 2019 at 3:15 pm following our Lenten Retreat for Women. 

 

You are cordially invited to join us for the retreat, the tea, or both.  Lent is the perfect time to take a deep breath, slow down and give yourself the gift of Afternoon Tea.
