Trinity’s Women’s Retreat is coming in March! We will gather at the Powell Butte Retreat Center starting at 1:00 p.m. on Friday, March 2nd and concluding with Sunday Eucharist on the morning of March 4th. Here are some frequently asked questions and answers:
Who can attend? We welcome all Trinity women who want to explore their spirituality and connect with other women in a fun and reverent context. If you are new to Trinity, this is a great opportunity to meet other parishioners. If there is space available, attendees from Trinity may invite a friend from another parish or faith community.
Where is the Retreat held? The retreat will be at the Diocese of Baker Retreat and Conference Center (14427 Alfalfa Rd, Powell Butte, OR 97753). The retreat center has comfortable and spacious meeting rooms, a dining hall, overnight accommodations, a lovely chapel for worship and quiet contemplation and extensive grounds with beautiful mountain views.
Where will I sleep? There are a limited number of rooms with two twin beds and a private bathroom (linens provided). These rooms are perfect for those with mobility issues or health concerns. Most attendees will stay in the cabins, which have four beds and a shared bath. You will supply your own linens and towels in the cabins, just like at camp!
Are meals included? Yes. All meals from dinner on Friday night through breakfast on Sunday morning will be provided. Please let us know if you have dietary restrictions or allergies.
Will I be forced to play games or do crafts? You will not be forced to do anything! We will offer a variety of presentations, workshops, small group discussions and creative activities. You will be free to wander the grounds or take a walk. The Chapel will be reserved for silent reflection. This is your retreat – you will be able to choose your own activities.
Do I have to stay overnight? While staying overnight will provide the full “retreat experience”, if you have family or other commitments at home, you can certainly commute to the retreat center.
How do I sign up? Return the Registration form with your payment to the parish office. You can also sign up at our table in Brooks Hall – after Sunday Services during the month of February.
