The 2019 Parish Retreat will be held at beautiful Epworth-by-the-Sea on St. Simons Island, Georgia, approximately a 2-hour drive from Beaufort. The theme of the retreat is Spiritual Gifts. We will be guided in our discussions and study by Mary M. MacGregor of Houston, an experienced retreat leader with a passion for spiritual gifts. She holds a bachelor's degree from LSU, an M.Ed from Southern University, and an honorary doctorate from Seminary of the Southwest for her contributions to the Episcopal Church. Prior to retirement, Mary served 14 years as Canon for Congregational Vitality and Mission Amplification at the Episcopal Diocese of Texas. Rates are per person, based on the number of adults staying in the same room and includes lodging for the 2 nights, plus 6 meals.
