"Sharing the Love of the Heart of Christ"


With the recent beatification of Blessed Clelia Merloni at the Basilica of St. John Lateran on November 3, “the Church has recognized this great woman; a woman of faith, a woman of courage and humility, and especially a woman of pardon," Sr. Anne Walsh, vicar general of the Apostles of the Sacred Heart told CNA.

The excitement of the beatification has resulted in many CJ alumnae yearning for more information about the foundress of the Apostles of the Sacred Heart.

This two day (not overnight) retreat will focus on her history, beatification and charism and will allow us to learn more about her and the charism and virtues she lovingly lived throughout her life.

Hear personal accounts from Apostles who attended the actual beatification in Rome and be one of the first to view a first-class relic of Blessed Clelia that was recently given to Cor Jesu.
