SAVE THE DATE - Morning Women's Retreat - October 8
8:30 AM-12:30 PM   CSMSG
The title of the retreat is "Christ From the Perspective of Anglican Women - Meeting Jesus through the lives of six influential women of faith."

The retreat will be led by the Rev. Ezgi Saribay and the Rev. Melanie Slane from Emmanuel Episcopal Church in Webster Groves.
Join us for this half-day retreat as we explore the lives and gifts of six women, both local and international, within the history of Anglicanism. The focus will be on how each of them lead in Christ-like manners. This retreat will help us as women grow spiritually deeper in our vocation, ministries, and life. Please join us for this time of reflection and to connect with other women in our greater community.
