Special Events


Fall Retreats

Fall Retreat offers unique and meaningful experiences to build relationships, connect with God, and grow in faith. Our retreat includes get acquainted activities, games, singing, small group activities, personal reflection plus some free time for fun and crafts!

Spring SoulFull Retreat

The annual SoulFull Retreat focuses on developing your spiritual life and nourishing your soul. It provides time to be still and sense God’s presence. As part of our traditional Saturday evening prayer ceremony, we offer blessings for our incoming 7th graders and outgoing 12 graders. Last year’s retreat was an enormously uplifting experience for our group. Seniors are invited to assist with leadership. We have used both the Lake Louise (Boyne Falls) and Lake Huron (north of Port Huron) Retreat Centers for this event. Travel is by charter bus.

Please visit our Youth Forms page for other required retreat forms.
