Lifesprings Canossiance Spirituality Centre, 100 Jalan Merbok, Singapore 598454
This Silent Retreat will give you an environment that will help you understand yourself better, find an inner calm space to hear God’s voice and obey his word, and understand not only how you relate to yourself, but also identify your role in relationships.
Benefits of a silent retreat
– We find God in a deeper dimension
– We learn to shut out external activity
– We learn to meditate on God’s nature
– We grow in our love relationship with God
We will gather on Friday evening for dinner and orientation then you will be free to begin your silent retreat. We will come together again on Saturday afternoon before leaving to debrief and have a time of sharing.

Women's Bible Study September ~ December 2017

Bible Study - “Fight Back With Joy” by Margaret Feinberg, 6 weeks
Learn to practice joy, defiant joy. Sooner or later, we find ourselves on the battlefield of life and struggle to know how to respond. But God says, "Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God's" (2 Chronicles 20:15). On that fateful day, King Jehoshaphat and his army marched forward rejoicing. Though we can choose from many weapons, God wants to empower us to fight back with joy. This study will help you embrace a life that's richer and fuller than you've ever known before—a life radiant with joy.

These events help women get to know one another better in a convivial manner, while also being inspired by special programs. Yearly events to anticipate include an elegant Christmas luncheon in December and a Women’s Tea in May.
