Faith & Family Magazine Hosts “Mom’s Day Away” April Retreat

Registration is now open for this event in Stoneham, Massachusetts


New London, Conn. (March 2, 2011) —Faith and Family magazine has been inspiring Catholic family life, and Catholic moms in particular, both in print and at their vibrant website for many years. Now, Catholic moms are invited to this inaugural live event scheduled for Saturday April 2, 2011, at St. Patrick’s Parish Hall in Stoneham, MA, 8am – 5pm.

This Moms-only “day away” is designed to inspire and energize mothers for their important work as they joyfully celebrate their Catholic Faith with other Catholic moms. Moms will be spiritually “pampered” with prayer, socialization, relaxation, and inspirational talks.

This event allows mothers to share wisdom and inspiration with sisters-in-Christ who are walking the same faith journey. Featured presenters are well-known Catholic Mom bloggers and authors:

Danielle Bean, editor of Faith and Family, and author of three books on the subject of mothering, including her latest, Small Steps for Catholic Moms (Circle Press, 2010).

Rachel Balducci, blogger at Faith and Family and Testosterhome, and author of How to Tuck in a Super Hero, and Other Delightful Mysteries of Raising Boys, (Revell, 2010).

Jennifer Fulwiler, blogger at Conversion Diary, and at the National Catholic Register


Schedule for Sat. April 2, 2011: Doors open, 8am. Conference hours 9am – 4pm. Attendees are invited to attend the Parish Vigil Mass at 4pm. Morning break and lunch is included in conference fee.
