Women's Advent Retreat
December 6-7
Chanco on the James, Surry

Chanco on the James and the Episcopal Church Women (ECW) invite you to join women from around the Diocese as we gather together at Chanco on Friday, December 6 and Saturday, December 7 for a Time for Reflection in Advent. We will explore a fresh new approach to journaling as an avenue for spiritual discovery, renewal, and enrichment in our first ever Women’s Guided Gratitude Workshop. Together we will consider and capture stories of gratitude while guided by a professional Personal Historian. Stories of a grateful heart link us to family, history, love, prayers, lessons learned, and new awakenings. Click here for details and registration.
