Women's Retreat in Lima

Women from the AMA groups in Lima enjoyed a weekend at the Franciscan Retreat House in Rimac. The retreat was lead by Major Luz of the Salvation Army and the theme was Signs of the Times. A group of eight women from Christ Church, Plano, was among the sixty seven participants, making an important contribution to the testimonies, worship and other activities. Marsha Costus is the leader of the North American group.
The retreat concluded on Sunday morning with a celebration of the Holy Eucharist, presided over by the Bishop.
The Plano group now goes on to Arequipa to lead a second retreat for the women of AMA there.
AMA stands for the Asociacion de Mujeres Anglicanas (the Association of Anglican Women), which is affiliated to the worldwide Mothers' Union with its headquarters in London.
