We invite ALL the women of St. Mark’s to join us on Saturday, May 21st, from 9am to 12:30pm at the church for a time of reflection, connection, and nourishment. During this half-day retreat led by the Rev. Nikky Wood and Debie Thomas, we will create and hold space for the diverse sorrows and joys we’ve experienced over the past two years. In what ways have we known a season of grief, loss, and tears? In what ways have we simultaneously experienced wonder, delight, and laughter? We invite you to bring your layered stories of “weeping” and “laughing” to the retreat, so that we can hold them together as a community, and express them through individual reflection, small group conversation, artistic expression, and fellowship around a meal.
We will be serving lunch for everyone, but we need to know ahead of time how much food to prepare. PLEASE register for the retreat by emailing Debie at firstname.lastname@example.org BEFORE May 16th. If you are able to contribute towards the cost of the meal, a $10 donation would be appreciated.
If you have any questions, please reach out to Debie or Nikky. We hope to see you at the retreat!
