Kairos Outside of Eastern Wisconsin
Will Host It’s Next Weekend
October 11-13, 2019
While the Kairos Inside program ministers to men and women who are incarcerated, Kairos Outside is designed to support the adult female relatives/friends of the men and women who are or have been incarcerated in the country’s state and federal correctional facilities, as well as county/city jails or youth offender programs. These loved ones of the incarcerated often “do time” right along with their relatives/friends. It is important for them to know that they are not alone and that there is a Christian Community that cares about them.
The support is provided in a safe and loving environment during a special Weekend Retreat beginning on Friday night and ending on Sunday afternoon. During the Weekend, the guests will have a chance to interact with other women who are in similar situations and learn how to form Small Support groups, giving them strength in facing their challenges.
The Weekend Retreat is a series of talks and activities by women sharing their life journey. Each Guest has the opportunity to review the talks in small family groups – however, sharing is voluntary. The program is interspersed with music, prayer, fun activities and general pampering. The Weekend is Christian in nature, although no religious affiliation is necessary to attend. Those who attend are expected to stay for the entire program.
