Don't Miss This Winter Break....
3rd Annual WOSM Winter Retreat
The Women of St. Margaret's are holding their third annual
winter retreat at Kalmbach Memorial Park on Saturday, Jan.
24, 2009. The guest presentor is The Rev. Anne Kitch, author
of several books on spritual formation for adults and
children. She will be speaking on:
"Praying with the Desert Mothers:
Finding Wisdom in the Wilderness of our Lives."
This retreat is designed for women who hunger and thirst for
rest for the body, solace for the soul, and relief from
frenetic activity. The Desert Mothers were holy women of
the 4th Centruy who went into the wilderness to give
themselves completely to prayer. Meditating on the words of
these "ammas", we will be invited to discover how their
wisdom can enliven our spiritual practices today.
The day begins at 9:30 a.m. and ends at 3 p.m. Beverages,
snacks and a light lunch are provided. There is no charge
but reservations are necessary. Phone the Parish Office at
610 967 1450.
Women of faith from other denominations or neighboring
Episcopal parishes are welcome. There is room for another 12.
Save the date and your spot today!
The grounds at Kalmbach are great for walking. We suggest
that you bring cameras, journals or sketch books. The snow
date is the following Saturday--Jan. 30.
