“Strengthening Our Souls in these Troubled Times”
We will return to the La Salette Conference Center in Attleboro, MA, for our fall 2017 conference. The Rev. Laurel Hallman, Spiritual Director and Parish Minister, will lead us in a spiritual retreat focusing on accessing traditional contemplative skills of stability, wisdom and vision as challenges swirl around us. She will ask us to reflect on “Who we are as elders in these times.” The program will include worship services, an odyssey, and a field trip as well as interest groups and social time.
The cost is $250 per person including lodging for three nights, meals, snacks and beverages, and the program. Registration is open through Sept. 8. Download and print the Registration Form, fill it out, and mail it in with your payment. Note that funds are available to subsidize the costs. Accessibility at the Center is somewhat restricted, even with some new shower grab bars donated by UURMaPA. Showers and toilets in the sleeping rooms are not accessible to wheelchairs, although they are just a few steps from the room. There is an elevator and there is an accessible toilet on the ground floor.
Phyllis Hubbell and John Manwell are co-chairing the planning committee. For information contact Phyllis at 571-223-6604.
