Join us Monday, April 28, 2014 at the beautiful King’s House Retreat and Renewal Center. Just a short drive from St. Louis, come experience the beauty, peace and hospitality of this holy ground. Our day will begin at 9:00 a.m. with prayer and a morning conference led by Rainey and Maria, followed by quiet time to enjoy the Spring weather and walk the grounds. Then great conversation over a delicious lunch, followed by an afternoon conference with our “sisters.” Our day will conclude with Mass at 2:15 p.m.
