This weekend retreat day will explore some of the places we find God in daily life: in friendship, nature,
work, play, joy, pain, and prayer. The time will consist of input sessions, quiet time, and sharing.
Using scripture, stories, poetry, music, and humor, Sister Melannie will lead us in rediscovering our own everyday epiphanies.
Cost: $125.00 Commuter: $90.00 Registration Deadline: March 20th, 2014
