Tenth Annual Women’s Retreat April 28-30th
The Tenth Annual Women’s Retreat will be the weekend of April 28th-30th at a beautiful home in Depoe Bay, Oregon, just south of Lincoln City on the Oregon Coast. The cost is $150 for 2 nights lodging and meals, and our facilitator is Outreach Coordinator Deb Mantey.
In this 500th anniversary of the Reformation, we’ll explore what an extraordinary woman Martin Luther married. The former Augustinan monk agreed to marry an escaped nun to encourage others, and because his marriage would: “please his father, rile the Pope, cause the angels to laugh, and the devils to weep.” We’ll learn about the strength and perseverance of Katharina von Bora, and gain inspiration for our daily challenges and life of faith. Come join with women and friends of Saint Mark for a time of renewal, conversation, laughter and reflection.
