Song of the Caged Bird: A Retreat Day for Women Veterans

Maria DiBello, RSM

August 28, 2021

“I know why the caged bird sings.”

Maya Angelou

Each of us knows the song of sorrow and longing.  Each of us is allured by the song of freedom and joy.  On this day of reflection and sharing, we will share our heart’s song with others who have lived its story.  Immersed in the beauty of Cranaleith that reflects our own, we will draw courage to claim its fullness.  We will listen deeply to the Creator’s tender song of love within us and be drawn into the healing promise it holds for our world.

Transportation assistance is available for this event.  Please contact for more information.
