Finding Joy in the Moment
Retreat for Parents and Caregivers
of Adults and Children with Adaptive Needs
Marian Chapel, Gesu Church
Presented by Anne DeMarco
February 18th, 2023
9:30 – 10:30 AM
How can a deep sense of joy be found in our heart and spirit despite the
busy pace of life that is often filled with challenges? Anne DeMarco will share
spiritual insights from the life of Mother Theresa to show how brief, grace-
filled moments can rekindle the spark of Christian joy. Using examples from
her rich experience in ministry, Anne will offer practical suggestions to begin
the New Year in a positive, hopeful way.
Anne DeMarco received her certification in Lay Ecclesial Ministry from St.
Mary Seminary. Her extensive professional outreach has enriched the
spiritual life of many, including members of the police force, the homeless,
the incarcerated, and the adaptive needs community.
During the retreat, McAuley Hall will be open for adults and children who
have adaptive needs. Volunteers will assist with crafts and activities. After
the retreat, all are invited for refreshments.
