Women’s Retreat April 25th-26th
Women’s Retreat Friday April 25th – Saturday April 26th
This year’s retreat is extra special with The Rev. Canon Judi Yeates presenting the program on her last weekend as Canon to the Ordinary. We hope you will display the poster and advertise the event in your congregations.
The topic is Forgiveness: A Christian Virtue. Mother Judi has requested that we read the book or have watched the movie Philomena as she will refer to it in her presentation. Sandra Squires may be able to get the movie for us to watch on Friday night of the retreat as well. Retreat attenders will want to bring a journal or notebook and a Book of Common Prayer. The guest rooms at the retreat center have Bibles.
The retreat will be held at the Benedictine Retreat House just north of Schuyler, Nebraska, Friday, April 25th Saturday, April 26th.
The cost is $95 for a double room, $100 for a single room, with meals included. We will gather from 4-6 p.m. and have supper at 6 on Friday, April 25th. Mother Judi will speak on Friday from 7-9, we’ll have snacks and a movie afterward. Breakfast is planned for 7:30 Saturday morning, with the program beginning at 9:00. Mother Judi will celebrate the Eucharist before lunch. There will be time for public or private confession and absolution. We plan to finish by 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 26th.
We hope you will join us for the retreat and we hope you will help us get the word out to as many as possible! Please contact me if you have questions or suggestions!
