In other words, I made a mistake.
I mistakenly set our ticket system to stop receiving registrations this past weekend. Oops. If you attempted to buy a ticket for Summer at The Well on June 24 and weren’t able, I am sorry! Have no fear … but please know the real deadline is soon near.
Tickets are indeed still available. Head over here to register.
One note about a true deadline, however. In order to receive a gift bag, you must register by June 9. We like to call them blessing bags around here because of the wonderful items in them to bless you on June 24 and beyond. Some items included in the bag are a notebook and pen for note-taking throughout the gathering, a frame-worthy saintly quote beautifully printed and presented on a 5×7 card, hospitality items you may need throughout the gathering, a copy of the July Magnificat magazine, and the book I Believe in Love: A Personal Retreat Based on the Teaching of St. Therese of Lisieux by Fr. Jean C. J. d’Elbée. Not only have the messages within this book served as inspiration for The Well this summer, the book is ideal as a personal retreat or for daily spiritual reading – a perfect companion to go deeper after the gathering.
The moral of the story? To avoid finding yourself in a position where you’re uttering “Oops,” because you missed out on a blessing bag, head on over here and register by June 9.
