During the Fall season, the Women’s Retreat Group (WRG) gathers the first Saturday each month, 9:00 – 11:00 am at the Christie House Library or by Zoom, with an 8:30 Early Bird Lite Breakfast start unless otherwise noted.  (2023/24 Season Dates listed below.)

Each season, we have a half day retreat in town in November and a multi-day retreat at St. Andrew’s House in April.

Our group discusses Bible readings using Forward Day-by-Day, learns about our parish, celebrates the liturgical calendar, and deepens our fellowships. We highlight and celebrate the many helping hands at Epiphany and learn about how we may pitch in and reach out. Please see the meeting schedule below, which includes our Meet & Tag On gatherings throughout the season.

Together in Christ we are,
Karen Forbes, Elizabeth Roberts, Sarah Beshlian, Mary McGuire, Ann Beck, Ellie Kniffin, and Valerie Conn

We meet on the third Saturday of every month at 8:00 am in the Great Hall for breakfast, prayer, and a guest speaker. We invite you to join us! Please contact Amanda Eap at for more information.



You are invited to join us at the 2023 Men’s Retreat on October 6-8 at beautiful St. Andrew’s House on Hood Canal.  Need convincing?  Here are three terrific reasons to join us at the Men’s Retreat:

  1. 2023 MEN’S RETREAT SPEAKER AND FACILITATOR, BROTHER DENNIS GIBBS.  Brother Dennis Gibbs has a compellingMbg Retreat Invitation Pic 2 personal story of heartbreak and redemption.  Once a successful Hollywood actor, Brother Dennis went through a downward spiral that included addiction, poverty, homelessness and incarceration.  Now a prison chaplain, a gifted speaker, published author and co-director of a restorative justice ministry recently featured in the Los Angeles Times, Brother Dennis has something important to say about second chances and personal change.   (Brother Dennis is also Rev Doyt Conn’s spiritual advisor.). He will push attendees to step outside the box and examine their lives anew.  The theme of this retreat will be the power and discipline of prayer.  The Men’s Retreat is a perfect spot for this kind of discussion.  Don’t miss your chance to experience the gift that is Brother Dennis Gibbs
  2. ANDREW’S HOUSE RETREAT AND CONFERENCE CENTER – AND ITS BEAUTIFUL, PRISTINE SURROUNDINGS: Owned and operated since 1954 by the Episcopal Church of Western Washington, St. Andrew’s House is a retreat center with comfortable rooms, a log-cabin style wood and stone lodge, and spectacular views of the Olympia Mountains. Last yeat, Epiphany Men went kayaking on the Hood Canal, biking on trails, hiking in the mountains.  (It is B.Y.O. K.  & B. – Bring Your Own Kayaks & Bikes.) Or you can just relax and reflect in St. Andrew’s stunning grounds and gardens.  The food, created from local growers and cooperatives by Chef Cody is, to quote past retreat attendees, “the stuff of legend.”
  3. THE BEST REASON? THE MEN WHO ATTEND ARE A GREAT BUNCH OF FELLOWS.  These few days provide MEN an Mbg Retreat Invitation Pic 3opportunity to get to know new people – as well as a chance to spend quality time with established friends.  It’s the lasting friendships created through a shared experience that will make the men’s retreat worth the time and effort.   


    Price: $295, but cost shouldn’t preclude fellows from attending, scholarship funds may be available.

    Availability is limited.  Don’t miss out!  Sign up today.  For more information and questions, please contact Amanda at
