“For a newcomer, the women’s retreat is a shortcut into the heart of the church community.” – Barbara Martin

What I have most enjoyed about the Women’s Retreats is the variety of women who attend, all with different ages and experiences. It’s a unique opportunity to share concerns and feelings with a wide spectrum of women in a spiritual context.” – Sandra Shaw
