“Having a Mary Heart in a Martha world: Re-balancing our Lives” with The Rev. Julie Cicora

Retreat Date: 
April 29 - May 1, 2022

Julie Cicora is an avid knitter who believes in the power of prayer. After being ordained an Episcopal Priest, Julie began studying prayer which lead to her first book "All I Can Do is Pray" about her hospital chaplaincy. She started a contemplative prayer practice which she found difficult to sustain until she combined it with knitting. Knitting opened the door to a daily prayer practice for Julie and other knitters who participated in Julie's Lenten knit along. This led to her second book "Contemplative Knitting." Julie received her Masters of Divinity degree from Colgate Rochester Divinity School and was ordained in 2000 after a twenty-two-year career in sales at Hewlett Packard in sales. She lives in upstate New York on Lake Ontario with her husband and afghan hound. Outside of work, she likes to ride her motorcycle, windsurf, knit, write and visit her five sons and twelve grandchildren.
