Faithbooking (March 13 - 15, 2020)

You are warmly invited to our 8th annual “Faithbooking” Retreat - March 13th - 15th, 2020 - with the theme "Belonging."

This is a beautiful time of the year to begin to ponder some changes you might want to make, and this could be the perfect 'get-a-way' opportunity. You are worth it! If you've attended before, you know how priceless this time away is. For those of you who have never been, let us explain that Faithbooking at its core a means creating a tangible expression of one's faith. It can be done without being creative! BUT even before you can create anything tangible - you need to take time to ponder or meditate on the many blessings in your life. When was the last time you took that time - to just gather thoughts on the workings of God in your life. This retreat can simply be your opportunity to be present and LISTEN to God. There are no expectations - no “supply list,” no directions, no requirements. It is a weekend of your own design. We hope you will prayerfully consider joining us.

Cursillo Women's Retreat (March 19 - 22, 2020)

The Cursillo week-end starts on a Thursday night and ends on Sunday night. During these three days, a small course (cursillo) is given on the fundamental aspects of Christianity and the Christian way of life. The weekend is composed of real-life experiences, given mostly by lay-persons, which become the basis for small group discussions.

These testimonies and exchanges are intermingled with songs, laughter, breaks and moments of prayer. The atmosphere is one of warmth, fraternity and respect.
