Women’s Overnight Retreat


“In the Arms of God and Women”

A Summer Retreat

August 27 (evening) and August 28 (until 3:00)

Rolling Ridge Conference Center, No. Andover, Mass.

             Who says you can’t have a summer retreat?  This retreat will be a great way to end your busy summer! Martha and Mary Productions (a non-profit organization led by Julia Steer from St. James Episcopal Church, Groveland; and Louise McRae from Main Street Congregational Church UCC, Amesbury) will present a multi-denominational retreat for Christian women on August 27-28.  We expect women from at least 5 different churches!  Come join us and bring your friends to Rolling Ridge Conference Center for an overnight retreat that will include music and singing led by Jen Acorn (from All Saints Episcopal Church in West Newbury).

             Our program will include time for rest and reflection in the arms of God and women!  Together and on your own, you will be able to stroll or hike the grounds and woods of Rolling Ridge; walk the outdoor labyrinth; meditate and pray by the lake; sing and dance; and enjoy the company of women.  The Retreat’s theme is rest, reflection, and discernment.

             The workshop begins with dinner on Friday night (6:00 pm) and ends on Saturday around 4:00 pm.  You can arrive as early at 3:00 on Friday.  The cost (includes 3 meals, lodging, and materials) is $99 per person, double occupancy.  Limited private rooms are available for $125.  One handicapped-accessible room available.  Payments due as soon possible to secure a reservation.  For more information: jsteer45@comcast.net or 978 346-1116.  Checks payable to Martha & Mary Productions, c/o Julia Steer, 56 River Rd., Merrimac, MA 01860.
