Retreat at St. Mary Retreat Center

Oxford, MI

Contact Sr. Rosemarie 313-869-2160

 You are invited to a time to renew your spirit in the beauty and quiet of a weekend at St. Mary Retreat Center, Oxford, MI.  You will enjoy a relaxing, homey atmosphere surrounded by fields and lakes.

The retreat provides the opportunity to walk with the Lord, listening for the inner movements of the Spirit.   Pondering the Word of God moves us to know ourselves and the Lord and find gifts needed for our daily journey. We will have moments of reflecting together and silence.

 The retreat begins Saturday morning, and begins with breakfast at 8:30 a.m.  St. Mary’s is about an hour from Detroit.  We will close on Sunday at 3:00 p.m. 

We look forward to sharing the week-end with you.  Wear comfortable clothing. Bring a Bible, notebook or journal and pen.  Private bedrooms.  Showers and toilet facilities are in group bathrooms.  You may bring snacks to share.                 

We are asking you to consider $100.00 or whatever is affordable for you. This includes lodging and 5 meals. Make checks out to the Home Visitors of Mary. It is not necessary to send money with registration.  Please invite another, you think would appreciate a retreat week-end.

Lovingly in Christ,

Sr. Rosemarie, HVM

15th Annual Fundraising Gala: October 13, 2019.  2-6 p.m.

Join us a the beautiful St John Armenian Conference Center, Southfield, MI on Sunday, October 13, 2019, for the 15th Annual SHVM fundraising gala.  This year joyfully honoring Fr. Donald Archambault, retiring Corpus Christi pastor.

Proceeds from the annual fundraising gala go to support the HVM missions in Nigeria.   Early childhood formation and family live have always been an HVM focus.  With your help we hope to build a permanent Home Visitors of Mary Day Care Center and move from the small space Sr. Vivienne has rented the past four years.

Sr. Vivienne’s day care in Apo, not far from Our Lady Queen of Nigeria Cathedral, provides a loving center for children six months to two years of age.  It’s in an area where both parents must work for a living, struggling to exist.   The HVM sisters support these families by providing a safe and loving environment for the children’s early years.

I wish to support 15th Annual HVM Gala:

Sponsors & patrons will be recognized at the Gala and receive table seating for guests.

Contact Sr. Rosemarie Abate at 313-869-2160 or email homevisitors@att.net.
