About the Retreats

This year’s retreat, Women Together in Community, will be held April 6, 2019.

Sacramental Life women’s spirituality retreats are sponsored by Shenandoah Presbytery and New Castle Presbytery. Partially funded by a grant from the Synod of the Mid Atlantic and by funds from the former HerStory Conference, the retreats take place in April at the Massanetta Springs Conference Center, Harrisonburg, VA.

We hope to encourage participants to deepen their faith and enlarge their vision. Inspired by a theme of “Women’s Spirituality: Being Women, Being Sacred, Being Ourselves,” a committee of seven women from churches in the Shenandoah Valley plans the retreats.

Each retreat is organized and led by women of faith who believe that our lives belong to God and that we should take our faith and our lives seriously. We are committed to equality and openness; all are welcome to come and rest and be with us.

Worship is a central part of the retreat, with beautiful services planned for every morning and evening.

Participants are invited to bring their open minds, open Bibles, toiletries, a notebook or journal, comfortable clothes, and cash or a checkbook for the offering and/or Saturday afternoon activities: Yoga, Massage, Fair Market shopping in Harrisonburg

Other Saturday afternoon options include discussion, hikes, walking the labrynth, rest, study, etc
