2014 Parish Retreat
Join people from St. Mary’s of all ages who will be up at the Bishop’s Ranch in Healdsburg May 16-18. In the beautiful, outdoor setting of vineyards, woods, creeks, and fields, we will gather around the theme “Teach Us To Pray.”
Friday night we will have dinner available and are currently planning to watch a movie. Saturday morning there will be fun programs for specific ages—children, youth, and adults - focusing on the purpose and practice of prayer. Saturday afternoon, choose from a workshop, swimming in the Plage Pool, or free time to relax or explore.
Saturday evening we share wine and cheese and a special surprise “tasting” designed for kids. After dinner, all are in store for a lively bingo extravaganza, then congregate around the bonfire for stories, singing and s’mores.
Sunday morning, we gather for communion in the late morning and conclude with lunch. Registration is open now. Plan to come, and bring a friend!
