The month of May has long been associated with Mary, the Mother of God. Come and celebrate this beautiful tradition in the Garden of Mary at Holy Spirit Retreat Center. Discover the origins, history, and symbolism of a Mary’s Garden. The flowers of spring and their connection to the Mother of God, the Mystical Rose will be explored. You will have the opportunity to work in the Mary’s Garden at Holy Spirit Retreat Center or to design your own special indoor arrangement to take home with you – a great gift idea for Mother’s Day. Ideas for balconies, window displays, and patio grottos will be also be discussed.
Prayer and guided meditations will also be included as part of the day’s activities.
