ANNUAL WOMEN’S RETREAT, Save the dates!

March 13 – 15, 2015

Speaker: Patti Pierce

Location: Mary and Joseph Retreat Center, Rancho Palos Verdes

Our annual retreat is an opportunity to treat yourself to a weekend away with other women, with yourself, and with God.

The weekend includes many opportunities for personal and spiritual growth, as well as fellowship and fun with other women.

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!
