MIRIAM, HANNAH AND ESTHER:
Three Jewish Women Who Still Inspire Today
Saturday, March 25, 2017, 9 am to 3 pm
St. Placid Priory, Lacey, WA
cost: $50 

    In Miriam we have that rare example of someone whose faith we can glimpse as a child, a young woman, and an older woman.  She invites us to consider God at every age.  We have marvelous examples of prayer in Hannah who "poured out her heart before the Lord," and in Esther who interceded for and saved the Jewish people.  Spend the day discovering and learning from these women of the Hebrew Scriptures who still speak to us today and who are often overlooked.  Contact St. Placid Priory 360-438-2595
 
 
 
WITNESSES ON THE WAY
St. Michael Catholic Church
Snohomish, WA
April 1, 2017, 9 am to 3 pm

Witnesses on the Way is an interactive Stations of the Cross that immerses you into the story through the eyes of characters who were there.  The First Station, for example, is presented in the voice of Pilate's Wife.  The first half of the day, learn about various biblical characters and then in the second half, create and pray the Stations as Witnesses On The Way.
If you are interested in joining with the parishioners of St. Michael's participating in and praying these Stations, please contact Teresa Kuntz, 360-568-9460,    
 

  WITNESSES TO RESURRECTION

The purpose of Lent is to prepare for Easter.  Yet how many Lents are followed by spiritual exhaustion?  After the initial alleluias, we go back to life-as-usual.


Shouldn't Easter last longer than the bunny?

This year it can with WITNESSES TO RESURRECTION, an online weekly retreat experience throughout the seven weeks from Easter to Pentecost. Each Monday morning, you receive a reflection on a different Resurrection appearance of Jesus.  Reflections that are:
  • multi-sensory
  • interactive
  • easy to use
  • ideal for individual or group use 

Last year, over 130 persons took advantage of this retreat.  This year, it is being offered to churches for their distribution to parishioners as well as being available to individuals and small groups. If you'd like to register click here!

As friends of SISTERS IN SCRIPTURE, I ask you to introduce this idea to your faith community so that you can experience all of Easter with your fellow parishioners or small group.  It will also, however, be available for individual registration, if you so desire.  If you have questions, feel free to contact me
