About the Event

As the holidays approach, perhaps you need some “me” time.  Or “we” time with Jesus.  You are invited to take a break and recharge.  How you spend the weekend is up to you.  Here are some ideas of what you can do on your personal retreat. 

Artist Joan Di Stefano, OFS will be holding optional sessions beginning Friday evening and throughout the weekend. She will be on hand with supplies and to help you create cards and secular or religious mini-art for the Holy season. She invites you to send love notes of gratitude, peace, and prayer to the people in your life; special “gifts” to be treasured for years to come. You will also receive handouts you may reflect upon both during and after the retreat.

Check in starts Friday between 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm and departure is on Sunday at 1:00 pm.
