Anglican Women’s Retreat

Join us for the Anglican Women’s Retreat this October.

Come away, beloved daughters and hear Jesus speak these words, “Take Heart.”


Anglican Women's Retreat Postcard

The Anglican Women of the ADOSC will hold their fall women’s retreat October 21-23, 2022 at St. Christopher Camp and Conference Center. The Rev. Dr. Sandi Kerner who serves as the Director of Programs and Chaplain at St. Christopher will be our speaker. We pray that this retreat will be an opportunity for women to find rest and healing for body and soul.

“Take Heart!” is the theme. Jesus prepared his disciples to face into an unprecedented season of trial by speaking these encouraging words, even as his own death loomed very near: “I have said this to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation. But take heart, I have overcome the world” (John 16:33, ESV).
