Retreats & Events

We design and host retreats to renew and strengthen women spiritually and physically. Our retreats are open to all women, individuals or groups.

We offer one annual retreat in Memphis for women of all ages and vocations which is scheduled from Friday evening through Sunday afternoon. It includes conferences on matters of Discernment of Spirits and the Interior Life. It includes daily Mass, Benediction, opportunities to pray the Rosary and Divine Office together, as well as time for private prayer and for the reception of the sacraments.

Twice annually we offer retreats for consecrated women, publicly or privately given to our Lord and those intentionally discerning. These are retreats of deep silence, solitude, and prayer with learned retreat masters and partner apostolates.

All of our retreats occur at retreat facilities which provide a monastic setting with beautiful views, land, and space.


We offer events throughout the year for women and men. These events are designed by Mary and Elizabeth or in collaboration with our partners apostolates. It is our intention that those attending might encounter Jesus’ healing presence and be equipped for mission.

Lilies Winter Retreat

The Lilies Winter Retreat is an annual five-day silent retreat for consecrated women (public or private) or those intentionally discerning from January 10-15, 2024. It is a retreat of deep silence, solitude, and prayer with two conferences each day, 4-5 hours of personal prayer, Eucharistic adoration, and public recitation of Morning and Evening Prayer and Compline from the Divine Office. It will be in Danceyville, TN at Our Lady Queen of Peace Retreat House.

Healing the Whole Person in Memphis

Mary and Elizabeth is serving Pew Ministries and the John Paul II Healing Center in order to bring the Healing the Whole Person Conference to Memphis in September 2023.

Experience Jesus in His mission of healing! Physical, spiritual, and emotional healing have been central to the Church’s life and 2,000 year tradition. It comes to life in this teaching. Led by renowned speakers and authors Dr. Bob Schuchts, Sr. Mariam James Heidland SOLT, and Bart Schuchts, this uniquely engaging format will help you see and experience God’s healing love through teaching, prayer, personal reflection, Adoration, worship, and the Sacraments.

Healing the Whole Person is the basis for Dr. Bob Schuchts’s best-selling book “Be Healed” and takes place only four times each year. Memphis will be one of those places in September 2023!

“Come away by yourselves to a secluded place and rest a little while.”
- Mark 6:31
