One of my teaching parish committee members from St. Hubert's Catholic Church in Chanhassen is organizing a two-day event for women only next weekend January 20-21. Not only that but she is offering the parishioners from Epiphany (and their friends) free tickets. So, if you are looking for a way to engage more in your faith here is the opportunity, it promises to be a great experience. Here is some more information:

Fire of Hope, a Girlfriends Getaway for God,  will take place next weekend, January 20-21, 2012, at the State Theatre in Minneapolis.
