Women at a Crossroads

A residential program for women at a crossroads in career, study, or lifestyle.

  • in business or professional careers,
  • in homemaking,
  • in lay careers in the church,
  • in ordained ministry,
  • in life in a religious community,
  • or in the many other ways in which we may serve God.
