Catholic Women of Zion - Chapter 1 Retreat Day


YOU ARE INVITED TO CWOZ CHAPTER 1:  The day consists of Mass, Adoration, Music by  Joyful Praise , Speakers, Sharing, Networking and Prayers for Healing.

Viola Lifrieri This month’s speaker is Viola Lifrieri. Viola is a parishioner of St. Andrew’s Church in Westwood, NJ. She has been very active in Parish Life over the years and currently serves as a Lector and Eucharistic Minister. She has also served on the Parish Council, and delights in working with others to provide faith-formation programs.  Her heart is most deeply drawn to serve the people of God through the Charismatic Renewal, weekly prayer meetings and as Co-Chair of the NJ Catholic Charismatic Renewal Conferences in the past. In the last few years, she has been working with a team of holy women who have responded to the call to bring CWOZ Retreats to Northern New Jersey under the co-founder and director, Mary Ann Collett. Viola delights in the gift of her family: Her husband, Larry of 52 years, three married children and eight grandchildren. After her move to New Jersey, Viola experienced the call to have a deeper relationship with Jesus and found her life transformed by the personal Love of God, and in response to His Love, has found ways and opportunities to return that Love. Please bring a friend and join Viola as she shares:

He Who Calls You is Faithful; He Will Surely Do It!”
