Parish Retreat 2017:

Experiencing God’s Goodness Through Our Five Senses

November 10 – 12, 2017

Canaan Valley Resort, located 3 hours away in beautiful West Virginia

Parish Retreat: Experiencing God’s Goodness Through Our Five Senses

By combining the theology of God’s omnipresence with the concept of mindfulness, participants will learn to expand their image of God by raising awareness of the present and blocking out distractions.

The retreat is designed to appeal to parishioners of all ages with appropriate, interactive breakout sessions.

The retreat begins in the evening of Friday, November 10th (Veteran’s Day Observed) and ends Sunday, November 12th following breakfast and morning Mass.

Canaan Valley Resort is located within a West Virginia state park, 3 hours from Triangle. It features an indoor swimming pool, hot tub, large game room, exercise area, hiking trails, clay sport shooting range, golf course, chairlift rides (ski slope in winter), dining room, basketball courts, bicycle rentals, etc. The retreat schedule includes an afternoon of time to enjoy the resort amenities or attend an optional plenary session.

Registration requires two steps. The first step is to register you, and any family members, and pay the corresponding retreat fees to St. Francis of Assisi. The adult fee is $110 per adult and the child fee for ages 6 – 12 is $45 per child. Children 5 and under are free. The retreat fee covers all meals throughout the retreat as well as space rental and materials. The specific food and beverage included in the fees are a reception Friday evening; breakfast, lunch and dinner on Saturday; and breakfast on Sunday. The fees are not optional, because the church is charged based on a per attendee rate. If you have food sensitivities, please provide that information on the registration form. You may use either your Paypal account or credit card to make an electronic payment. If you prefer writing a check for the total fee, please make the check payable to St. Francis of Assisi and indicate on the envelope that it is specifically for the retreat. Otherwise, it may be treated as a donation! This registration does not book your hotel room, and the registration fee does not cover your hotel room cost. Hotel reservations are the second step.

The second step is to reserve your room directly with Canaan Valley Resort, following the instructions, to secure the group rate of $79 per room per night. The church is not handling any room reservations.

Thank you! It is going to be a wonderful opportunity to enjoy one another and refocus on Experiencing God’s Love Through Our Five Senses.
