Gloria Coyne will be our speaker. Her theme is “Getting out of your comfort zone.” 

COMFORT ZONE

St. Catherine of Sienna said, “Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire.”  God hasn’t called us to be comfortable, in fact, we experience our greatest growth and fulfillment when we surrender to God and allow Him to direct us.  Most people define their ministries by their gifts and talents.  Jesus asks us many times to do what we think we can’t do.  We will discuss moving beyond our comfort zones in all aspects of our spiritual and ministry life and how Jesus’s command to love is directly related to your comfort zone.

Learn how to have a great adventure with surrender!

Our speaker:

The Blessed Mother was instrumental in bringing Gloria Coyne back to the one, true faith in 1996. Upon her return, she asked the Lord to show her how to use her gifts and talents to serve Him and build up His Kingdom. God took her up on her offer and He has always provided new and exciting challenges in ministry and service. She had developed a great devotion to the Holy Spirit and was led to Renewal in 1996.

Currently, she is the Bishop’s appointed Liaison for the Archdiocese of Philadelphia Charismatic Renewal for over 15 years and has also been elected to serve on the Steering Committee for the Association of Diocesan Liaisons. At the Papal visit in Philadelphia, she was the local Administrator for the World Meeting of Families International Charismatic event. As a Renewal Coordinator for the English-speaking groups, here in Philadelphia, she oversees over 80 prayer groups, Experiencing Full Life in the Spirit Seminars, Praise & Worship and workshop events, and the annual Archdiocesan conference.

She has served on the Board of Catholic Charities and is on the Committee for the Archbishop’s Benefit for Children. Most recently, she has invited this past Pentecost, to the Vatican for the launch of CHARIS, an international service of communion.

This retreat is another in a series of virtual retreats that Malvern is offering to help people during these challenging and stressful times.  Through conferences, prayer services and opportunities for questions and answers, you will be inspired to take heart and have courage.

This retreat is for everyone.  However, it is especially designed for those men and women who have been unable to attend their annual retreat.   This virtual retreat will count toward the total number of retreats you have already attended at Malvern.   To satisfy your weekend retreat, you will need to attend both evenings.  Other retreats like this will be offered in the future and will substitute for your annual retreat.  Please check the Malvern Retreat House web site for future offerings.

PLEASE NOTE: Registration is required. This retreat is being offered free of charge. However, Malvern would deeply appreciate a donation to help in these challenging times. Suggested donation is $50
