Sacred Heart To Host Women's Day Of Reflection

On March 21


Last updated 2/12/2020 at 4:43pm

On Saturday, March 21, the next Christian Women’s Day of Reflection will be held at Sacred Heart Church in Brevard.

This program, which brings women of all denominations together to pray and worship our God, has been a yearly event since first starting in 2004 by Dr. Debbie Felker. Felker retired to Brevard with her husband, Marti, in 2001 and shortly thereafter was moved by the Holy Spirit to begin a Lenten program, bringing women of all faiths together.

Her feeling was that our Savior, Jesus Christ, died and rose for all of us making us one true family. Coming together as daughters of God and sisters in Christ only seemed appropriate. The day features a speaker, music, small group discussions followed by lunch and fellowship. It is a half-day event held on a Saturday to allow working women to be able to attend and the cost has been $10 since the retreat first started to cover the cost of the luncheon. In the past, speakers have come from the Cove – Billy Graham Training Center – in Asheville, from Florida, Hendersonville and other local speakers.

This year the speaker will be Felker, who started this program 16 years ago. Felker feels that God has directed her life since she first decided to become a physician and will talk about how God has brought her to where she is today. Felker was asked to speak about the journey she has been on for more than two years since she was first diagnosed with stage IV pancreatic cancer in December, 2017.

She will talk about her life walk with Our Lord and His guidance on her journey to her eternal home. Music will be provided by Anne Trufant, who is a well-known local composer and performer of Christian music and who has been a speaker at events all over the world. Sacred Heart Church is located across from Blue Ridge Community College in Brevard The retreat begins at 8:30 a.m., with sign in and coffee and donuts, and will end at approximately 1 p.m. after the luncheon. Pre-registration is required and can be done through representatives at local churches or by calling Jenni at Sacred Heart at 883-9572, Monday-Thursday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., or Friday, 10 a.m. to noon. Registration will end on March 16, so please sign up early.
