Storrs Friends Meeting Retreat
Ministry and Worship Committee has designed this year’s theme around Quaker Worship, and the facilitator for the adult program is Margaret Cooley. Margaret currently serves as the Executive Director of Woolman Hill. She has also served as the clerk of Mt. Toby Meeting, the clerk of NEYM Ministry and Counsel and has offered a variety of workshops and retreats to monthly meetings around New England. A concurrent children’s program and child care will also be offered.
There will be plenty of time for small group sharing, walks, personal time—and practicing/collaborating for our usual Saturday night talent show!
Please come! We welcome you for any or all of the weekend. Your presence and participation is what makes these retreats so special. We hope that you can stay the entire weekend to build a sharing community and experience the rhythm of the whole retreat. Fees for the entire weekend are usually about $150 for adults and $75 for children, but please do not let finances prevent you from attending. Financial aid is available, and a “pay-as-led” system is used.
Let us know that you and yours are coming! Here is the link for the on-line registration form. Hard copies of the form will also be available at the meetinghouse. This helps us organize room, board and hospitality.
