Saint Mark's Women's Retreat: May 1-3, 2009

The 2009 St. Mark’s Women’s Retreat is coming! We have reservations for Friday evening, May 1, through noon on Sunday, May 3, at the Cathedral Center in Echo Park, where we enjoyed ourselves last year.

This year on retreat we’re going to start our own personal prayer books. This will give us an opportunity to explore types of prayer and specific prayers that we find meaningful, and we’ll take home what we hope will be an aid and a springboard to our ongoing engagement with God. We’ll keep some of the elements that we liked best at last year’s retreat, including small prayer groups, meditations, music, and some guided art projects. As usual, we’ll catch up with ourselves and each other, and come home rested and renewed.

Like everything else in our lives, the Cathedral Center’s costs have gone up. The cost for the weekend, including five meals and two nights’ lodging, is $175 per person. We can accommodate 28 people in 16 double and single rooms with connecting bathrooms. We will accept payment in installments and will try to find financial assistance for those who need it.

To reserve a place at the retreat, please complete this registration form and return it to the church office with your deposit of $40.00 per person. The preliminary registration deadline is April 5, 2009 (Palm Sunday). The balance of the retreat fee will be due April 26, 2009. If we run out of rooms, we will start a waiting list.

If you have questions, please contact Terri Jones (797-7620), Mo. Betsy (798-6747), or Joanne Morse (798-6747).

These weekends are always special, and we hope you will join us.
