The Be! Women’s Ministry hosted our annual retreat  The Word Speaks: Praying the Psalms on St. Luke’s campus on March 3 & 4, 2023. 

More than 80 women came to listen, discuss, pray and grow in faith together.  We heard from our speaker, Connie Denninger, who “Awakened our Hearts” to the Psalms.  Visit Connie’s website at
