Retreats are an opportunity to step away from our daily routines and work. It gives us time to take a deep breath and reconsider some of the things that are important to us. It allows us to consider our work, our personal goals or perhaps things we want to achieve and allow ourselves to make time to consider these things quietly.
Here we will discover different retreats and explore their offerings, as each one has their own unique personality. One component that seems to be a common thread at most retreats is that they are places where the ingredient of peace and quiet can lead to meaningful transformation.
It is here where we’ll share unique locations we feel are worth exploring as we compare the different qualities and services that each offer and provide information for those who choose to visit or learn how to establish a retreat.

Our mantra of Love in Our Worlds is not a gimmick or a program of the church, but rather a natural response to the love shown by God that calls us to be servants.
