Remembering when...


Posted from Pat Legere-Hicks

The Band of Sisters has held three October retreats at Laurel Ridge Retreat Center in the beautiful North Carolina mountains.  Many of you joined us for these retreats.  During the first retreat in 2016, “Dorothy Day- Seeker-Sister-Saint”,  Maryann Crea presented us with meaningful insights on the life and times of Dorothy Day. 


In 2017 at “B’s in a Bloomin’ Bonnet”, Christine Miesowicz and Regina O’Connor led us in an exploration of balance gleaning insights from St. Benedict and Brené Brown.  This retreat started off with torrential rains which produced tornadoes in the area.  Luckily, Laurel Ridge was spared and we were graced the first evening with a double rainbow. The retreat that followed was just as spectacular.  


Christine and Regina joined us again as presenters for our 2018 retreat, “That We Might See”.  All attending were blessed with insights on how they viewed their faith journeys.

As you you can see in the pictures, our time together for all the retreats has always been spirit- filled and full of joy and exploration. 

This year we will be hosting our retreat on October 21-23, 2019 at St. Francis Springs Prayer Center in Stoneville, NC and hope you will consider joining us.  Space will be limited so the sooner you register the better.  Visit the Fall Retreat page to learn more.
