St. Clare Silent Retreat
One weekend each year, just as the trees begin to turn from green to gold, we gather in a lovely lodge nestled in nature’s sanctuary to more fully experience the blessings of silence. It is there in those sacred woods that silence invites us to be led deeper into the awareness of God’s presence in our lives.
St. Clare Silent Retreat Weekend for Women and The Rev. Mimsy Jones are pleased to announce that our annual retreat will be led by Connie Cruthirds.
Connie is a writer, master certified life coach, and compassionate observer of self and others. Silence is her go to place to listen for what she believes is always there waiting to help us find our way through this wild world.
We invite you to join us for this very special weekend October 20-22, 2017 at St. Columba Conference and Retreat Center in Memphis, Tennessee. The cost for the full weekend, Friday 5 pm thru Sunday 12 pm, includes a private room with shared bath, all meals, full access to St Columba’s beautiful property and all sessions with Connie is $260.
