Pittsburgh Mercy Parish Nurse & Health Ministry 2020 Spiritual Retreat
March 7 at 8:00 am - 4:00 pm$55
The Pittsburgh Mercy Parish Nurse & Health Ministry Program’s 2020 Spiritual Retreat, “Sacred Dance to the Rhythm of Life,” will be held Saturday, March 7, 2020 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Martina Spiritual Renewal Center, 5244 Clarwin Avenue, West View, PA 15229. An optional overnight stay on Friday, March 6 will be available.
The retreat will be facilitated by Rev. Joan Prentice, M.Div., D.Min. who is the Founder, Executive Director, and Pastor of The Ephesus Project, a Pittsburgh nonprofit. Dr. Prentice has more than twenty years experience in pastoral ministry. She began as a staff pastor to new disciples at Mount Ararat Baptist Church in Pittsburgh. Her focus at Mt. Ararat was in pastoral care, spiritual counseling for new members, curriculum development, and volunteer training. After much discernment and prayer, Dr. Prentice established The Ephesus Project in 2013 and describes it as “Traditional Church in an Untraditional Way”. The Ephesus Project exists in community as a “Church without Walls” and holds true to the principles of the Christian faith but in creative ways of ministry.
The cost for the Day Retreat is $55.00 per person and is payable to the Pittsburgh Mercy Parish Nurse & Health Ministry Program. The optional overnight stay is an extra $40.00 for retreatants who choose to stay overnight on Friday (dinner on your own) and is paid directly to Martina Spiritual Renewal Center. Space is limited for overnight retreatants, so early registration is encouraged. Handicap accessibility is available upon request.
