Staff invited to attend Women@Work Retreat

The weather is usually sunny and the atmosphere is always casual at the Women@Work Retreat.

The 2008 Women@Work Retreat will be held April 24-25 at St. Francis Retreat Center, located in the hills above the town of San Juan Bautista.

The retreat offers staff a chance to get to know one another in a relaxing pastoral setting and participate in a variety of topical workshops.
