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)

As women of the Diocese of the Rio Grande we work to live out this promise in retreat, fellowship, study, and ministry.

5th Annual Bosque Retreat Registration Available Now!

The 5th Annual Bosque Center Gathering on November 18-19 offers a unique opportunity for fellowship, worship, and delving into YOU...Yearning, Owning, Understanding the Puzzle Pieces of your Life under the guidance of Elaine Wilson. Because God is active in our lives, we all have Yearnings. Some of these have come to fullness, others have not.  We must Own and recognize where we are on our journey. This will help us Understand how everything that happens is part of the Puzzle of Our Life. Through sharing, worship, and quiet, we will travel together through an examination of how personal life dreams can become reality in everyday life, using some basic tools (e.g. BCP, Bible) of our Christian heritage.
Bring yourself, your Bible, a Book of Common Prayer (BCP), and friends to explore ways for strengthening your personal worship to undergird our daily life. We’ll begin at 5:30 PM on Friday evening with check-in, followed by dinner and our first exploration. On Saturday, breakfast will be at 8 AM and our time together will conclude by 3PM.
Registration, including supplies and 3 meals, is $30. (Some 1/2 scholarships are available, contact Cindy.)
Single rooms at the Bosque Center are $52/night and must be reserved on the registration form. (A couple of queen rooms are available for slightly more/night. Contact Cindy for info.)
