The Rev. Priestmonk Jonah [Paffhausen], Abbot of the Monastery of Saint John of Shanghai and San Francisco, Point Reyes Station, CA, and editor of “Divine Ascent,” will be the featured speaker at a workshop-retreat sponsored by Orthodox Women in the Healing Ministries at the Dormition of the Mother of God Monastery here June 6-9, 2002.
The theme of the retreat is “Spiritual Warfare.”
“Traditionally, the workshop is both a time of retreat as well as an opportunity to meet fellow Orthodox women who work in the health care field,” according to Dr. Pam Taylor, retreat spokesperson.
The $125 registration fee includes meals, lodging at the monastery’s new guest house, and a workbook. A certificate of attendance will be given to those wishing to apply the retreat to their continuing education requirements.
