JAY — A women’s day of recollection entitled “Be Welcomed into God’s Love” will be held at St. Rose of Lima Church, located on 1 Church Street in Jay, on Saturday, July 10, from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. A closing Mass will be held at 4 p.m. for those interested in participating.

The special event is being hosted by the Sisters of Life, a community that believes that every person’s life has deep meaning, purpose, and worth. The community offers crisis pregnancy help, hope and healing after abortion, and additional services to over 1,000 women each year. The sisters also host retreats for men and women who need a “spiritual recharging and reignition of their hopes.” The Sisters’ charism is primarily to love the human person.
