The archdiocesan Catholic Charities-Social Concerns ministry will offer “Called to Love: Lenten Morning of Reflection for Women” at the Benedict Inn Retreat and Conference Center, 1402 Southern Ave., in Beech Grove, from 9 a.m.-noon on April 9.

Called to Love is a non-political, discipleship-focused look at how Christian women are called to put love into action.

This Lenten retreat offers time for spiritual reflection on the labyrinth walk at Benedict Inn.

From there, participants will reconvene at Holy Name of Jesus Parish, 89 N. 17th Ave., in Beech Grove, for a guided discussion to go deeper following the personal reflection time and engage in fellowship over light refreshments.

Finally, participants will have the opportunity to respond to an invitation to find out more about how they’re being called by Christ to put their love more deeply into action for those around them during this Lenten season and beyond.

There is no cost to register or attend, although registration is required by April 8.
