From Friday evening until Sunday afternoon, they gather at Dove House to share a restful and refreshing weekend of fellowship, discussion, and good food and to enjoy the natural beauty of the countryside.
Participants share in providing and preparing the meals for the group and in the cost of renting the retreat house. Dove House will accommodate 24 people and women are welcome to come for just part or all of the weekend.
