Feature photo … Women’s’ retreat closing Mass

JACKSON – Almost four dozen women from St. Therese Parish gathered to reflect on the theme “Be who God meant you to be and you can set the world on fire” during a two-day bilingual retreat led by the Redemptorist Fathers from Greenwood. The gathering featured group and individual sessions as well as personal free time. One member, Rosa Saldana, crocheted flowers for each woman to wear. Each flower had a prayer on the back.
