Dinner for a Cause 7.17.17

We had Dinner for a Cause on July 17, 2017. People from near and far whose lives had been touched by Sister Eppie came to support Dinner for a Cause. What is the cause? The heart of Regina RICA: the Institute for Contemplation in Asia. This will be a venue for transformation through silence, stillness and simplicity in this world that is filled with stress. Finding God in RICA was written by Sister Eppie to share with us her experiences. It is simple and yet to find God we need to invest in TIME.
Come join us.
