Major Fundraiser with Terry Hershey

Friday, December 11, 2020 ~ Major Fundraiser for Mary & Joseph Retreat Center
“How to Stay Spiritually Hydrated in a World that Depletes Us”
Zoom Presentation with Terry Hershey, Author, Speaker, Minister
Friday, December 11, 2020 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm
During this difficult year of shutdowns and restrictions, we have remained safely open to the public but, it has been a struggle to maintain our Center and sustain operations. It is an ongoing and costly challenge, and as pandemic conditions continue, we need the help of our friends and supporters to make it into the new year. We have introduced online retreat programs, and in that spirit we invite you to an evening of spiritual sustenance and renewal with acclaimed presenter Rev. Terry Hershey via Zoom. We will gather remotely in fellowship, to enjoy a meal, celebrate and to support Mary & Joseph in it’s time of need.
Terry has volunteered his time for our fundraiser ~ a vote of confidence that means so much to us. He is an author, humorist, inspirational speaker, and ordained minister. He treasures “sanctuary” and sharing his practice of “pausing” to help us rest, renew, and live wholehearted. A delicious dinner will be prepared for you to serve in your home to family and guests. Pick-up will be at the main entrance to the Retreat Center, 12 noon-5 pm.
“Let us raise a glass to the enduring value of Mary & Joseph Retreat Center so that we can continue to dance, to sing, to tell stories and to enjoy the sweet territory of silence.” ~ Terry Hershey
The evening also includes the final opportunity drawing for our beautiful, queen size, handmade quilt “East Meets West”. ~ Loving crafted by the Mary & Joseph Quilters

This quilt takes its name from the stunning array of hand pieced fans. East & West come together in harmony and elegance — the East in the richly detailed Asian themed fabric, and the West in the distinctly American pattern “Grandmother’s Fan” style of quilting. Sensu, the Japanese word for fan, is a symbol of breath, change and spirit-moving. The Spirit flows even to the back of this quilt! It features Asian fabric won at the South Bay Quilt Guild Show and donated to the Mary & Joseph quilt group!
