2024 Women’s Spring Retreat

 Registration is closed for this event
For further information and/or Scholarship availability, please contact Debby Sutherland debbora.sutherland@gmai.com or 860-869-9293

Exploring stories of women in scripture and history, we will reflect on women’s ways of knowing and being known. The Retreat will include times of reflection, dialogue, music, prayer and play. Participants can select workshops to attend on Saturday afternoon, and the Retreat concludes with worship on Sunday morning. Please bring a picture of yourself, when  younger, that you would like to share with others as we get to know each other and be known more fully.
