The weekend is intended for any person who wants to grow in their relationship with Christ and others; the person who is looking for more out of life – the “fullness of life” and joy that Jesus came to bring us. There is a separate weekend for women and men.

A team of lay people, priests, and spiritual directors conduct the weekend, which includes: talks and discussions, prayer services and Masses, as well as time for reflection, good food and fun. For more information contact Deacon Matt Levy at deaconlevy@gmail.com.
