TOPEKA — The Topeka Regional Catholic Women’s retreat will be held on Jan. 23 at Christ the King Church here, located at 5973 S.W. 25th St. The keynote speaker will be Lisa Cotter.
Cotter, a former FOCUS missionary, debunks the myths of modern-day stereotypical womanhood. Using insights from St. John Paul II and the heroic example of other modern-day saints, Cotter gets to the truth about what it means to be an authentic woman. Balancing sound theology with humor and practical insights, Cotter inspires audiences of all ages. Her work has been featured by EWTN, Lighthouse Catholic Media, YDisciple and the Chastity Project. She is a graduate of Benedictine College, Atchison, where she earned degrees in theology and youth ministry.
