Celebrating 26 years of ministry to the HIV/AIDS community, HIV Caring Ministries is pleased to host the annual 2019 Strength For The Journey retreat for those infected by HIV/AIDS and their caregivers. The retreat will take place at the Mingus Mountain Camp & Retreat Center in Prescott May 16 – May 19 in 2019. Registration will open October 10, 2018. The purpose of the retreat is to create a respite from the challenges that come from an HIV diagnosis. The retreat will provide opportunities to grow and develop caring relationships in a safe, loving, and caring environment. Activities during the retreat will include discussion groups, hiking, crafts and tie-dye as well as opportunities for prayer and meditation.
Transportation or carpool may be available from Phoenix and Tucson. Partial scholarships are also available on a limited basis. For questions about registration or scholarships, please send an email to HIVministries@dscumc.org or call Linda Girard at (520) 797-8803.
