Women’s Retreat 2023

Friday, April 28 (4:30 pm) to Sunday, April 30 (11:00 am)

What does it mean to be nourished?  How can we nourish our minds, bodies, and souls?  Join us for this year’s Women’s Retreat — a weekend of spiritual reflection and fellowship as we rest in the loving Word of God.  It is to be held at St. Joseph by the Sea Retreat Center in S. Mantoloking, NJ.  For those who have never been there, this is a phenomenal facility located right on the waterfront, allowing for walks on the beach and ocean views that are spectacular.  Each participant will have her own private room and will share a jack-and-jill bathroom with one other woman.  We meet in the parking lot of PCOL on Friday afternoon and caravan to the beach, stopping on the way for dinner at a local restaurant.  The retreat starts Friday evening, allowing time for those who work to get there.  The retreat fee covers lodging and Saturday breakfast, lunch and dinner, and Sunday breakfast and lunch.  We have a worship service Sunday morning, and those who need to leave to meet family at church before noon can do so.  This year the retreat programming will be light so that maximum time is allowed for connecting, fellowship, fun, exercise, reflection, meditation, and activities that draw us closer to each other and to God.  It is a great time to relax, recharge and enjoy nature.
Note:  We will not be able to use the St. Joseph by the Sea retreat center if we do not have 20 participants. So if you plan to come, please contact Margaret Brungard (mbrungard@pclawrenceville.org) at your earliest convenience. If we do not get 20 women signed up, then we will change the venue to Camp Johnsonburg Retreat Center.
