"Let is be with me according to your word."
In the midst of all the sounds, activities, and preparations for the Christmas Season it is possible to miss our own annunciations and opportunities for giving birth to Christ in our lives. This quiet overnight retreat will include contemplative prayer, presentations, personal reflecting time and end with a contemplative Eucharist.
Our leaders are Emily Wilmer and David Keller.
