Retreat based on ‘The Red Tent’

Sister Mary Ann Figlino (Sister of St. Joseph Carondelet) will lead a retreat Friday and next Saturday at St. Pius X Catholic Church, sponsored by Wisdomworks, a nonprofit, nonsectarian organization providing resources through workshops, retreats and seminars for spiritual integration.

Figlino, who holds master’s degrees in early childhood education and Scripture, was a primary school teacher for 21 years. She worked as a chaplain for a Denver hospital before becoming a parish minister. She currently ministers at the Empowerment Program in Denver, where she worked with women who are ex-felons.

The retreat, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. next Saturday, is based on Anita Diamant’s bestselling novel “The Red Tent.”

Suggested donation is $30. Register at Wisdomworks, 1204 N. 14th St., or call 667-7562.
