Tuesday, October 16 (6 pm supper) to Thursday, October 18 (4 pm)
An ecumenical retreat series based on the work of Parker J. Palmer where clergy, lay leaders and spiritual mentors journey together for four retreats to experience renewal, a safe place to speak openly about their lives and vocation, connection with their soul’s inner wisdom and courage to live authentically.
People in this retreat continue to journey together as they explore how the themes of Autumn speak to their lives and work as spiritual leaders. The retreat is based on the work of Parker J. Palmer and provides opportunity for renewal, open and honest dialogue about our lives and vocations, and discernment. It is intended for people already registered in this seasonal series but an introductory retreat will be offered again in early 2014 for others who are interested.
