On April 19th, Sr. Juliann and Sr. Mildred will be giving a retreat to over 100 women using the theme the woman at the well. This time at the well will be spent to help the women be aware of their role in proclaiming the Good News as did the Samaritan woman. They will look at all the nuances of the longest conversation Jesus had with another human. The symbolism of water will be studied from Scripture. All of us have been brought to the Living Water by some individuals, books or events. This retreat will give these women the opportunity and space to recall them in their own lives. Sr. Mildred reminds us that we, too, must become wells for others so they know Jesus. Sr. Juliann will enrich this retreat experience and story from Scripture with a creative art project that will help the women deepen their understanding of Jesus' teaching. We will become the "Women at the Well!"
