Calling all sisters in their 20s & 30s! Join us January 18-20, 2019 in Phoenix, AZ for Giving Voice’s peer-led weekend of prayer, relaxation and community. This year’s theme is Staying at the Table: Our Commitment to Community.
Giving Voice uses the principles of The Circle Way as a basic format for our gatherings.
The retreat begins with supper on Friday night and concludes with Mass and lunch on Sunday. Participants have the option to stay an additional night for $25 and depart Monday morning.
What does Giving Voice’s 20s & 30s retreat offer that you can’t get anywhere else?
“Peer leadership. You just get a whole different feel because your peers are running it. The fellowship for sure, and the freedom. If you needed time for self-care you are welcome to do that. It’s free and open, and a really great space for sharing and for dreaming new possibilities. I didn’t realize how much I needed that time with the community and how much energy and how reinvigorated I got just by being with everybody. I’m looking forward to it next year!” –Sister Mandy Carrier
