"Con Pie Firme" Hispanic Women's Retreat 2005

More than 150 women gathered at Camp Kuratli in Boring, Ore., for the eighth annual Hispanic Women’s Retreat held Sept. 9–11. Coordinated by Alina Careaga, this year’s event featured Gillen Molina as the main speaker. Seminars by Aurora Canals, Kathy Hernandez, and Dora Rodas were also presented. The purpose of the retreat, according to Careaga, is to help the women learn how to better fill their roles as church members, mothers and wives.

Each woman who attended received a blessing. Isabel Villeda said, “You can feel the Holy Spirit has been here.”

Next year’s retreat is scheduled for Sept. 8–10. For more information, contact Aurora Canals at (503) 794-4246 or aurora.canals@oc.npuc.org.
