This October, the women of St. Alban’s are invited to a time of rest, spiritual refreshment, and connection. This special retreat will meet at St. Alban’s on Friday evening (10/13) and all day Saturday (10/14) to reflect on the power of memory as spiritual reflection. We will reflect together on the way God’s presence has been known to us–in worship, creation, friendship, comfort in suffering, and the everyday–to ground us in hope for the future. You are invited to this in-town retreat centered on creativity, reflection, and friendship.
Nursery available (ages 0-4) upon request. Nursery will be open on Saturday from 8:30–10:30 AM and 1:00–6:00 PM. Nursery must be requested at time of registration. Use of nursery includes additional flat fee ($10 for 1 child, $20 for 2+).
COST: $35 (scholarships available upon request).
