Discover God's Infinite Mercy with us this summer at the Women of Grace Retreat
at Malvern Retreat House

Our culture and our world are in the throes of spiritual warfare and daily we battle to keep sacred our bodies, our marriages, our families, our homes, our place of worship, and OUR FAITH. Often we find ourselves at the foot of the cross, uniting our sufferings to Jesus, THE Sufferer. Through prayer and the sacraments, God’s grace and mercy are available to us! He has provided for us all that we need to be healed, to pick up our cross, to follow Him, and to bring His mercy to others. Join us for what is sure to be a profound retreat as we learn to stand at the foot of the cross of Christ, turn to Mary, our Mother, for her intercession, and transform our world through God's Infinite Mercy!

About Our Speakers:

Johnnette Benkovic Williams is Founder and President of Women of Grace®, a Catholic apostolate for women featuring a number of outreaches including conferences, media, study groups and more. After years of being a non-practicing Catholic, Johnnette experienced a deep conversion back to her Catholic faith in 1981. Her conversion sparked a new vocation: sharing the Gospel message through the utilization of media. She has been an inspiring and consistent presence on Catholic radio (1987) and in Catholic television (1988) ever since. She is the author of several books including  Full of Grace: Women and the Abundant Life Grace-Filled Moments Living Life Abundantly: Stories of People Who Have Encountered God Experience Grace in Abundance: Ten Strategies For Your Spiritual Life  and  The New Age Counterfeit .

Father Nathan Cromly is an informative and engaging speaker, writer, retreat leader, explorer, innovator, educator, and fire-starter for the Lord. Born and raised in Toledo, Ohio, he has joyfully served as a Catholic priest of the Brothers of Saint John for 11 years, and currently ministers in Denver, Colorado. Father Nathan’s spiritual direction, teaching, and dynamic witness have touched the lives of tens of thousands of children, teenagers, married couples, business professionals, and families. Father Nathan’s ministry has flourished by God’s grace. He began Eagle Eye Ministries in 2003; it is now home to six forms of outreach to teens and young adults. In 2015, he opened the Saint John Institute (SJI) —a unique program in which young adults earn an accredited Masters degree while receiving spiritual formation from the Brothers of Saint John. In the Spring of 2018, SJI celebrated its first graduating class, sending its graduates to work for the Lord in the for-profit world. Inspiring and equipping great talent for the Lord’s harvest, Eagle Eye Ministries and the Saint John Institute serve to raise up the spirit of the new evangelization in young people and send missionary entrepreneurs into the Church.
