Fall Women’s Retreat- September 22-24

Ladies plan to join us to share laughter, learnings, memories and more in the beautiful Lutherhill Galveston Retreat Center. Read about Lutherhill Galveston facility and history here

We will be creating art for our first-in-a-long time St. Martin’s Cookbook, delving into the stories of the “Nameless” Women in the Bible, eating together and exploring Galveston.

 Cost is $240/person including accommodations, transportation and meals. Here is the link for online giving: https://onrealm.org/saintmartins/give/womensretreat2023

Rides and Carpooling: The St. Martin’s bus, driven by Mike Kaase, who holds the required CDL license, will depart at 3pm on Friday September 22. Let us know if you would like to ride the bus. Otherwise, we can help to coordinate carpooling. 

 Our theme is Being At The Table: Feeding our Hearts and Feeding Each Other. The retreat at Galveston has a kitchen, but no cooks, so we will be cooking for each other. To commemorate this we will be asking all participants to submit their favorite recipes, tips, tricks, and other wisdom.

Food: In keeping with our theme of “at the table,” we will prepare and eat 3 meals in the Lutherhill space. Please sign up for one of the below meal prep teams. Plan to purchase any food items needing refrigeration or freezing at the HEB in Galveston; do not bring those food items from Austin. 

  • Meal 1: Saturday breakfast
  • Meal 2: Saturday lunch
  • Meal 3: Sunday breakfast 

Agenda for the weekend
