This April, women from Union Church gathered for two over-night retreats at Marie Joseph Spiritual Center. The theme was Women in Ministry. Ten women took part in the first retreat on April 6-7 and sixteen joined in the second one on April 12-13. We prayed, shared, sang, walked, ate and drank; and in the process got to know and appreciate ourselves and each other better and left strengthened and nurtured. We plan to do it again.
