Mother-Duaghter Days


Looking ahead to the Summer? Think about Mother-Daughter Days at our Convent in Hankinson if you’re looking for some quality mother-daughter time.

We invite mothers with their daughters to spend this time with us to pray, to recreate, to share our meals and to have some spiritual reflection time as well as time for just being together with your daughter(s).

We have had mothers and grandmothers accompany their young girls, from as young as babes- at-the-breast to college age. It is a holy time, as well as a time to meet other mothers and daughters. We have daily Mass, of course, we pray the Divine Office together and we share all our meals in common. We reflect on the beauty of our vocation as religious women and encourage the daughters to pray and be open to whatever vocation God is calling them to serve Him in the Church.

We have overnight accommodations in our retreat center where mothers stay in the same room with their daughters. This year we plan to make a pilgrimage to the Carmelite Monastery nearby where there is a designated Holy Door for the Jubilee Year of Mercy. It is just 27 miles from Hankinson.

The theme will be “Gracious & Merciful”. The days will focus on the Jubilee Year of Mercy, of course, but also the joys of being a woman!

We do not charge a set fee for this retreat, but rather ask for a free-will donation from participants.
