Surely God was in This Place and I Did Not Know It—Reclaiming our Calling as Heads of School

Please join us at this annual opportunity for school heads to gather and reflect on the nature of school headship and its intersection with the spiritual life. The Reverend Paula Lawrence-Wehmiller will be the retreat leader. Paula had a distinguished career in education before ordination as a priest in the Episcopal Church. She now combines her teaching and priestly vocations supporting and nourishing the work of educators, clergy, community leaders and the people they serve. Embracing the community’s gifts of diversity and making inclusiveness a way of life is at the heart her work. She will lead us through an afternoon of discussion, quiet reflection, and sharing.

The retreat [has offered me] the unique opportunity to find the time for prayer, song, silence, reflection and engaging conversation around the topic of why we do the work we do. I didn't know exactly what to expect when I came, but I was absolutely thrilled with what I left with from the retreat! — Jan Pullen, Head of School, Saint Stephen's Episcopal School, Bradenton, FL
Join your colleagues for a half-day spiritual retreat and exploration designed to dovetail with the NAIS Annual Conference.
