10th Annual Women’s Lenten Retreat

Lifting Women’s Voices, the tenth annual women’s Lenten retreat co-sponsored with Centenary United Methodist Church, will be held at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church on Saturday, March 21 from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in Colhoun A.

The retreat leader will be the Rt. Rev. Anne Hodges-Copple, Bishop Suffragan of the Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina. She will present “Building a Rule of Life from the Holy Family of Bethany,” based on stories from Luke and John about Mary, Martha and Lazarus. It was to their household Jesus retreated during the days leading up to the crucifixion. The three will serve as models for developing a life balanced among action, contemplation and transformation.

A Children’s Retreat led by Children’s Ministers from the two churches will be offered for students enrolled in PreK through 5th grade.

Child care will be available for children 3 years old and younger.

The cost of the Women’s Lenten Retreat is $30 and includes continental breakfast and lunch. The Children’s Retreat costs an additional $10 per household. Child care is available at no extra charge.

Register for the Women’s Lenten Retreat online.

If you plan to bring a child or children with you, please register each child separately, using the link at the bottom of the main registration page.

Bring along your journal, as journal-writing will be among the day’s activities. We also suggest bringing a sweater.
