Stories of Faith, Hope, and Love: Being Brave in Difficult Times
Women’s Retreat at the Beach

Mercy Retreat Center, Sea Isle City, NJ

The world is not made of atoms. It is made of stories.” -Muriel Ruykeser

Friday evening April 13- Sunday Noon April 15

Telling our stories connects us deeply to where we have been, where we are now, and where we are going. Telling them to each other forges bonds, builds bridges, and expands our understanding of ourselves and our interconnectedness. It takes courage to live and speak our truth; mining the wisdom of our own and others’ lives helps us tap into our own well of courage so that we can be act bravely, even or perhaps especially in these troubled times.

Come explore and share your own stories of faith, hope, and love in the company of other women at the beautiful Jersey shore. We hope to gather an inclusive group of women to ensure the widest and deepest possible experience for all.
