Magis Women is is an organization that seeks to break through the vast amounts of influences on female identity in today’s culture. They offer programs that are designed to bring women closer to God and to help teach women how to lead purposeful life.
Magis Women retreats are known for leaving heavy impacts on the women who attend. Women come together for a weekend to be transferred through God’s love.
As Catholic Christian women walking in the world, we often encounter trials of all shapes and sizes. As women walking in the WORD, we persevere with hope. Remembering that God’s mercies are new every morning, we are invited to begin again, and again.
Using scripture as our roadmap and story as our inspiration, this refreshing retreat will invite you to encounter the Living Christ through prayer, sacrament, and loving fellowship. Join our special group of like-minded women and experience the God of new beginnings as we move together from the darkness of this world’s trials Into the Marvelous Light of God’s Love and Goodness. —Magis Women
