Women of the Diocese of the Rio Grande

"Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of service, but the same lord; and there are varieties of working, but it is the same God who inspires them all in everyone." (1 Corinthians 12:4-6)

“The mission of the Women of the Diocese of the Rio Grande is to connect and support all women in their diverse ministries. We do this by offering opportunities to gather for studying, re-creating, and celebrating who we are as women of Faith, Hope and Love.”

Body, Mind, Spirit Retreat-June 21-22

Come away to the mountains to be refreshed by the quiet of San Geronimo Lodge in Taos, by meditations on Philippians 2:5-11, by friends, and by pampering of our personal ‘temple of the Holy Spirit’.

Friday evening is a time to unwind, get to know each other, get out of the hurry, hurry of our day-to-day with a short meditation and discussion of the Body of Christ. Saturday, after a relaxing breakfast at the Lodge, the Rev. Pam Tyler will lead a teaching on having a “spa of the soul to honor the holy temple we share with God.”  There will be time throughout the retreat to explore the on-site Prayer Walk and/or Labyrinth.  We will have time to enjoy pampering options, beauty demos, relaxing in the pool, crafts, watching a movie, etc. If there is enough interest, we’ll arrange a tour of Taos and/or the galleries of Taos.
Following dinner, we’ll relax together and review the day, play some games and maybe sing a few songs. Please make plans to stay both Friday and Saturday, so you can attend church at St. James, Taos. This is a lovely church and a beautiful way to end the weekend.
Space is limited at San Geronimo (15 rooms, 26 beds), register early (deadline May 20).
Day visitors can stay elsewhere & come for the retreat activities on Friday and Saturday.
