Christ Church Women's Retreat: March 10-11, 2018
St. Marguerite's Guest House, Community of St. John Baptist, Menham, NJ
We will meet at Christ Church on Saturday 3/10/18 for breakfast mid-morning, then carpool to St. Marguerite's Guest House in Mendham, NJ. It is run by the religious order of St. John Baptist (Episcopal nuns) whose convent is located across the lawn from the guest house.
We will have a special program on Saturday afternoon led by Cathy O'Flynn and Edna Marie Thomas. After dinner we will enjoy an evening of fun and fellowship. Sunday morning we will have breakfast, worship with the sisters (and/or spend time in private meditation), have lunch, then carpool back to Middletown. Earliest return time approx. 2 pm on Sunday 3/11/18.
Total cost: $100 which includes a single room and all meals. (Rooms do not have private bathrooms).
To reserve please launch the reservation tool and submit a check payable to "Christ Church" at 90 Kings Highway, Middletown NJ 07748, with "Women's Retreat" on the memo line. We can take a maximum of 27 people, then will start a waiting list. Reservations need to be submitted as soon as possible to hold our space at the guest house. Please see Father Bill if the cost prohibits you from participating, as there is some scholarship money available.
This is an excellent opportunity to get to know other women from our parish as well as enjoy some time for personal spiritual growth, meditation, or just quiet time away from the demands of daily life.
