You are invited to learn about the sacred trees of the Utes in this special retreat led by Sister Jan Ginzkey, OSB.

Retreat Description: Learn how to identify the sacred trees of the Utes in the Black Forest area. What was their spirituality? How can we appreciate and reverence creation in our lives now?
