SVPC’s annual Women’s Retreat is for all people that identify as women who desire to re-center on God, connect with friends new and old, and re-energize for everyday life. Join your sisters in faith at Vallombrosa Center in Menlo Park. We will gather in worship, listen to a stimulating speaker, create opportunities for reflection, and provide creative on- and off-site exploration and time for rest. The food is great (no cooking and no dishes), the rooms are comfortable and very accessible, and the program is sure to feed your soul.

Vallombrosa Center is located on 10 serene acres in Menlo Park, 13 miles north of SVPC. The beautiful grounds at Vallombrosa, with their clear light, rich green lawns and lush, towering trees, are a natural place for prayer and reflection.

Women's Retreat SpeakerThis year’s speaker is Reverend Ruth-Aimée Belonni-Rosario Govens. She is an ordained PC(USA) pastor who has centered much of her work around justice for women and other underrepresented groups.  We are so excited to hear about this challenging work and how God might be calling each of us to open ourselves up to her message.

We are looking forward to share this weekend with you. Are the costs of the retreat a barrier for you to go on this journey? Please register for the retreat with the discount code “HALFSCHOLAR” for 50% off, or FULLSCHOLAR for a full scholarship!
