This retreat was designed at the request of the bishop of the Diocese of Wichita, Kansas. He wanted to reach out to the professional singles in his diocese but discovered nothing was available in the United States that met his need. To create this retreat, Katrina Zeno combined the theology of the body with reflections on the nature of men and women, virginity, Vatican II's call to the laity and John Paul II's writings on mission. What resulted is a powerful and new way for single people to look at themselves and to see themselves as indespensible to society and the Church instead of as a "nonentity" during this seemingly interminable "waiting" period.
