Women’s Lenten Retreat

April 1 - April 2


$40 – $150

Join us April 1st and 2nd for our Annual Women’s Lenten Retreat featuring The Rev. Torrence Harman as we explore the teachings of Fr. Richard Rohr, a Franciscan friar and ecumenical teacher who bears witness to God’s glory in our time. Come learn about the interweaving of life experience, the “maturing” of our faith, and our spiritual formation as we reconnect with our “true selves” and are reminded of the heart-centered longing of the Divine God. Our time together will include, in Rohr tradition, both quiet contemplation and reflective action. Can’t wait to see you there! 

About Torrence
The Rev. Torrence Harman bring to this retreat three score and ten plus years of life and a special interest in the teachings of Richard Rohr. As a member of the 2018–2020 cohort class of Rohr’s Living School at the Center of Action and Contemplation, The Rev. Harman continue to learn from Rohr’s evolving teachings. The Rev. Harman is an Episcopal priest, ordained at age 60, and has served as adjunct faculty at the community college level teaching World Religion, Old Testament, and New Testament courses for seven years. She has served as a spiritual director and retreat leader for over a decade. Prior to her ministry, she was a family law attorney and Virginia Supreme Court mediator for twenty years.

The roles of child, parent, grandparent, homemaker, community volunteer, spouse, divorcee, re-married spouse, widow, friend, confidant, pastor, penitent have been threaded throughout my life. I have fallen many times: up, down, apart, and up again, in a continuing cycle along this journey we call “life” — coming ultimately to understand that I am simply a work-in-process, by the grace of God.
— The Rev. Torrence Harman
