All women & men of the Diocese are invited to join Bishop Michael Vono and the Rev. Paul Moore, and others to reflect on the sociological, ecological and social justice issues impacting ministry in our diocese, especially the Border areas, while meditating on Jesus’ time in the wilderness. This retreat is sponsored by the Women of the Diocese and the Brotherhood of St. Andrew.
You can participate in an optional Big Bend National Park tour on Friday morning (leaving 8AM). We’ll carpool through part of the Big Bend National Park, whose landscape is very similar to the Judean wilderness where Jesus was tempted. This time of quiet reflection will offer an inspirational introduction to the weekend’s talks. (Park fees apply)
The main part of the retreat begins at 6PM Friday evening at St. James’ Church in Alpine with dinner and the first presentation based on Matthew 4 by Bishop Vono. 

Time for prayer and reflection will be available throughout the retreat (all day Saturday). Retreat concludes Sunday morning at Eucharist at St. James.
