“There is stardust in your veins. We are literally, ultimately children of the stars.”  Astrophysicist, Jocelyn Bell Burnell

Together we will explore the wonder and awe of the same stars that shone on our ancestors, the starlight God uses to inspire, and the stardust in our veins. This experience will be sure to lift your spirits and instill hope in your hearts! This highly interactive series will be a combination of input, faith sharing, creative processing, and prayer to allow everyone to experience a sense of community as together we share in the awe of God’s handiwork.

Please register by August 30. Once we have received your registration, we will send you an invoice for the retreat. Please know we have scholarships available; if you would like to make a request, email S. Carol Ann at We strongly encourage you to add to your email contacts to ensure the delivery of emails regarding your retreat.
