Women's Retreat

For over 30 years, First Church in Cambridge women and friends have gathered on retreat each spring at the Craigville Conference Center of the Massachusetts Conference of the United Church of Christ.  Fifty or more women travel to Cape Cod to engage in honest and meaningful conversations in both large and small groups, to worship, to pray and play together, and above all, to relax, simply sitting and relishing each other’s company.  

Registration for the 2014 Women's Retreat will begin in late winter; check back here for the link to register online.
