2014 CPC Women’s Retreat – October 3-5  Camp Adams, Molalla, OR

“Women Doing Justice!” is the theme of this year’s retreat, sponsored by the Central Pacific Conference UCC Women’s Board.


Patricia Rumer is this year’s Resource Leader.  Patricia currently lives in Portland where she went to grade school and high school.  Since then, she has traveled extensively in the Caribbean, Latin American, Africa, the Middle East, and Europe.

In 1969, Patricia began working in Guatemala as a community development volunteer with the American Friends Service Committee in the rural highlands area. Last year, she returned as a delegate to a women’s human rights conference there.

She is a graduate of Occidental College with a Masters degree in political science from UCLA.  In addition, she has a PhD from Portland State University in urban studies and public policy.  There, she has been an academic administrator and has taught senior capstones for the last seven years.

This year’s Women’s Retreat will focus on how to “do Justice” in our world.  So, plan to learn some new ways of doing justice in our everyday lives and what God has to us about it.

Join us at Camp Adams to worship, discuss, meditate, sing, and play together.  It’s our chance to greet old and new friends, walk in the woods, and share our joys and sorrows as we build community among our Central Pacific Conference Women.  We hope to see you there!
