GROUPS and upcoming EVENTS
ANNUAL WOMEN’S RETREAT
Our annual retreat is an opportunity to treat yourself to a weekend away with other women, with yourself, and with God. Each March we offer a weekend on a hilltop in Palos Verdes in a nurturing environment of peace and beauty. The weekend includes many opportunities for personal and spiritual growth, as well as fellowship and fun with other women.
Our 2016 Women’s Retreat is scheduled for March 11-13, 2016 at the Mary and Joseph Retreat Center in beautiful Palos Verdes.
This year’s speaker is Rev. Candie Blankman.

COMFORT KNITTERS – Monthly, 1st and 4th Friday
This is a wonderful way to combine your faith with knitting. Knitters of all skill levels meet in a local home on the 1st and 4th Friday of each month to work on squares to be combined into an afghan for those suffering an illness or recent loss. Shawls enfold, give solace, shelter, and beautify. Those who have received these shawls have been uplifted and affirmed. We are happy to teach you to knit!
GALS is a caring and fun community for widows of all ages. We meet on the second Sunday evening of every month for dinner, conversation, and support.
