Discover the Beauty of the Rosary at the “Let’s Talk Roses” Retreat

Join us May 10-11 for a rejuvenating 24-hour retreat for women, exploring the numerous gifts and deep joys found in praying the rosary. Presented by Janette Howe of the Seven Sisters Apostolate, this retreat will delve into the scriptural roots of the rosary devotion and its symbolic connection to roses.

During this immersive experience, you’ll:

  • Learn what the Bible has to say about the spiritual significance of roses
  • Gain a deeper understanding of how to fruitfully meditate on the rosary mysteries
  • Draw inspiration from the lives of renowned “Roses” — the rosary saints
  • Explore ways to renew your rosary devotion
  • Experience the rosary anew through guided group rosaries

Whether you’re a lifelong rosary prayer or just beginning this powerful devotion, you’ll come away spiritually nourished and inspired to let the rosary bloom in your daily life.

Janette and her husband Jeff, married 41 years, have two adult children, including a priest son, Father Spencer, ordained in 2013 for the Archdiocese of St Paul-Minneapolis. She has initiated two apostolates: Truth Himself, founded in the 2004-05 Year of the Eucharist, which aims to cultivate knowledge, love and service of the Eucharistic Lord; and the Seven Sisters Apostolate, fostering prayer for priests in the form of offering holy hours.

A Seven Sisters group is seven women who each pray a weekly holy hour for a particular priest. Their goal is for every priest and bishop in the Lincoln Diocese to have a group covering them with prayers. To learn more about the Seven Sisters Apostolate, contact diocesan coordinator Rhonda Litt at 402-525-6396 (text or call), or visit sevensistersapostolate.org.

The two-day retreat starts Friday, May 10 with 7 p.m. Mass and an 8 p.m. talk, and concludes Saturday with a 6 p.m. supper. Women of all ages are invited, and not just those in a Seven Sisters group.
