It will be a simple overnight, beginning at 9:00 am Saturday April 25th and ending Sunday April 26th just before lunch. We will leave from St. Thomas early on Saturday (about 7:00 am) and return around 1:00 pm on Sunday. As in past years we will carpool, something made easier by beginning on Saturday.

The cost of the retreat is 180.00 for a double occupancy room and 240.00 dollars for a single occupancy room. This includes the cost of two breakfasts, lunch, and dinner as well as helping to defray the cost of a retreat facilitator. Please RSVP to Tami or Carol.  
We hope you are enjoying the booklet with your fellow parishioner's meditations. On the back of the booklet it encourages you to visit a website that has all lessons listed. It is www.lectionarypage.net - not .org.

In March 2020 Census self-response packets are mailed to residences. We encourage you to take the census, and to ask your friends and neighbors to do so as well. Fair representation and vital community resources we all need to build a thriving community are dependent on an accurate count.
