Each parish has received fliers and registration forms, or you can use the form online …

The retreat is for those already part of the Rock Point Intentional community, and also for anyone interested in learning more about it. It will be a time of engaging the Rock Point Vision: “To be a welcoming sanctuary of spirituality, creativity, community, education, training, and environmental stewardship.”

Anyone is welcome to come to the Closing Liturgy /Holy Eucharist Saturday, June 6th at 3 pm.
