Friday January 22 through Sunday January 24, 2016
Our Lady of Guadalupe Monastery, Phoenix, AZ
Sponsored by the Southwest Conference United Church of Christ
Facilitated by the Rev Moira Finley, Brent Smith, Michele Mellott and Trish Bruxvoort Colligan

A retreat for any woman, age 18 and over, who has experienced rape, sexual assault, or childhood sexual abuse including marital/partner rape, date rape, and stranger rape.

Using different activities we will explore steps on the healing journey from the trauma of rape. Trusting in God's love, we will learn together to find a new sense of wholeness in our lives. We will think about the darkness and difficulties we have had to endure, and the possibilities of transformation, and opening ourselves to new life. We will worship and pray together, finding encouragement in our experience of faith and the Divine.

The cost is $275 per person including lodging (double occupancy only) and meals.

A deposit of $125 is required to secure your place.

Registration deadline is December 10, 2015 and balance is due no later than January 8, 2016.
