"Come to the Water" Deanery Retreat

"Come to the Water" Deanery Retreat

by Susan Wahlstrom, Chair, Diocesan Health Ministries

Are you in need of time to step away from the routine of life and refresh and renew? Would you like time to focus more fully on your journey with God? Then you are invited to "Come to the Water," a Capital Deanery Retreat to refresh and renew, August 22-24, 2014 at Mercy Center Auburn.

Life is a journey, and like any journey, it is important at times to make sure you are intentional about the direction in which you are heading. We will be using the Living Compass program to help direct our bearings and renew us in God as our true North. For more information, please visit www.livingcompass.org.

We understand some folks may want to be at their own parish for Sunday services. That is an option, but due to the contract with Mercy Center we cannot reduce any costs. We do encourage you to make the intention to step away from the norm for two days and enjoy the full gift of this retreat. Jesus modeled this "getting away" quite well.
