    Both retreats provide an ecumenical weekend of reflecting, sharing and experiencing God’s love in community.

    There will be time for group activities, individual prayer, reflection, and exploring the beauty of the natural surroundings. Mass and confession will also be offered.  All offerings are optional, and the weekend is designed to meet each person’s needs and desires.
