"Mercy, Joy, and the Hope of the Gospel"
with Margaret Marszal, HM

Pope Francis calls us to live our lives witnessing Gospel values. Living out of mercy, joy, and hope can not only transform us to be witnesses of Christ’s message, but it will impact the world around us. In this retreat, we will take time to reflect on Pope Francis’ invitation to live a life of mercy which reflects the joy and hope of the Gospel.

Margaret J. Marszal, HM, a Sister of the Humility of Mary, has a background in retreat work, parish ministry, and education. Sr. Margaret is an experienced retreat presenter and spiritual director and has presented in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Indiana, and Florida. Her focus is on spirituality that integrates mind, body, and spirit. She is currently living in the Cleveland area.
