A Day of Reflection for Women
The story of Jesus' birth is a familiar one, but how much do you know about the three wise women in the story? Join us for a day of reflection as we pray with Jesus' mother, Mary; Mary's cousin, Elizabeth; and the prophetess, Anna. Each wise woman of the Nativity story reveals something about God and something about our true nature as women.
Program Cost: $50.00 (includes Lunch)
