This year’s retreat will be held at St. Francis Springs Prayer Center in Stoneville, NC - just a bit north of Greensboro. Since this will be Band of Sisters’ first retreat at the Prayer Center, we thought a few photos of the beautiful location and facilities might be helpful for those of you who are considering coming on retreat with us. Enjoy the gallery of photos below.

Our retreat is Dipped and Dyed in Prayer. It will be facilitated collaboratively by the core team of the Band of Sisters who will lead all those gathered in a variety of prayer experiences that dip us into awareness of God with us…and dye us to be more like Christ.

Come enliven your prayer life as we allow ourselves to be enfolded in prayer.

  • The retreat runs 4p Monday, 21 October - 1p Wednesday, 23 October

  • We will be staying in the main building where the chapel, meeting space, dining room, and common family room are all conveniently located. The fee includes room, meals, and materials.
