Witnesses to Resurrection

Dates: Beginning the Monday after Easter
Location: Your Email Inbox
An email retreat - participants receive weekly emails each Sunday during the seven-week Easter season to examine the post-Resurrection appearances of Jesus.

The Postponing of Witnesses on the Way caused the creation of Mondays of Lent.

Beginning in 2020, Kathleen created the online retreat, Mondays of Lent, as a gathering of community exploring How Then Shall We Pray? when we cannot pray together. Like bread from the oven, this retreat was created to hopefully feed us during the Lenten journey. Everyone signed up for the Newsletter was automatically registered for this event.

Witnesses on the Way - Retreat & Stations of the Cross

Witnesses on the Way is an interactive Stations of the Cross that uses scripture, reflection, music & prayer to immerse us into the story through the eyes of those who were there.  In the morning, learn about various biblical characters. In the afternoon create and pray the Stations as Witnesses on the Way. 

Retreat is co-facilitated by Kathleen Kichline, M.Div. and Betsey Beckman, M. M.

As dancer, choreographer, author, mother, wife, teacher and spiritual director, I am passionate about living life fully and fostering creativity in all those with whom I share life and ministry.  Rooted in the Roman Catholic tradition, I am a member of St. Patrick, Seattle, where I also direct the dance ministry.  The Dancing Word
 I love discovering where our stories, especially the stories of women, intersect with God’s saving action.  Family—as in motherhood, sisterhood, being a wife and grandmother, Scripture, retreats, spiritual direction, parish ministry and teaching are all opportunities to grow in that awareness of God’s story within our own. 

Advent Retreat

Let us enter into this holy season with Mary, to a time just hours B.C., in a small Galilean town, to a time and place and a woman’s "yes” that changed the world.  Through music, art, story and meditation let us once again experience Advent and prepare our hearts for the coming JOY!

Presented by: Kathleen MacInnis Kichline, M.Div. and Betsey Beckman, M.A. of "The Dancing Word".

For more information contact Kathleen.



The First Supper 

A day retreat exploring the timeless invitation to dine with Christ.  Join presenter, Kathleen Kichline, M. Div. in considering the scriptural, historical, and theological significance of this eternal Eucharist/ Passover event—celebrated then, celebrated now. 

To register, or for more information, contact Kathleen.


Let us go back to those first days after He rose. What was it like to encounter the Risen Lord? Using the various post-resurrection appearances, we will break open these scripture stories with creative imagination, song, prayer, and faith-sharing--closing with a unique Stations of the Resurrection
