Decora is a holistic retreat day set aside to inspire young women to discover what St. John Paul II refers to as their "feminine genius"...a woman must understand her "fulfillment" as a person, her dignity and vocation, according to the richness of the femininity which she received on the day of creation.

This program is for young women ages 15-21+. Cost for high school women is $10/person. Mentors and those older than high school women will pay $20/person. The fee covers the continental breakfast, lunch and materials.

Fertility Care is an important topic for women of all ages. Due to the nature of this particular talk, 15-16 years old need to be accompanied by their moms or a female mentor - an aunt, grandmother, female youth minister, etc.
