WHAT WE HOPE TO DO

  • provide regular opportunities for women to come together for spiritual development and guidance

  • offer overnight retreats as well as local gatherings providing prayer and a growing sense of community

  • organize and lead local outreach in areas of justice and service

This page is where you can learn about the upcoming gatherings for prayer, reflection and spiritual growth that are offered throughout the year. The Band of Sisters invites you to join in this growing community of prayer and works of charity.


Walk the labyrinth with us

You are invited to join the Band at the Millbrook Baptist labyrinth (1519 E. Millbrook Rd | Raleigh, NC 27609) at 9:30a on the 4th Thursday of each month for 60-90 minutes of walking, reflecting, and faith sharing.

Ann O'Hara will start off the time together with a brief orientation on the labyrinth (as needed). Following that, all will be invited to walk the labyrinth (or spend time in contemplation on the nearby benches). There will be ample opportunity for quiet reflection after the walk - as well as time for faith sharing with one another.

Mark your calendars and plan to join us. Going forward for 2019, the dates can be found on the Calendar page of the website. We will take a break in November due to Thanksgiving, December 26.

Note in the Pocket provides clothing to impoverished and homeless children in Wake County. This organization believes it is unacceptable that children are limited in their educational and social development because they do not have appropriate clothes for school. Band of Sisters invites folks to meet up with Linda Bedo, Maureen Leahy throughout the year to work with Note in the Pocket in processing incoming donations and outgoing orders. we volunteer on the third Tuesday of each month from 9:30a-12p.
