Details about Retreat
- We will meet in the St. Louis parking lot on Tuesday at 1pm and return on Thursday by 5pm.
- Only those over 21 are able to drive, so if you are over 21, we may ask for your help with carpooling.
- There are 20 spots for retreatants (and another 5 for leaders). Registration is first come, first serve. You MUST get your payment and your adult release form in by Dec 1 to hold your spot. Otherwise, those on the waiting list will be accepted.
- Retreatants may be asked to share beds. Yes, this sounds awkward, but we were able to arrange it last year so only people who were friends and didn’t mind shared a bed, and they were mostly girls. Shout out to the pair of guys from last year! 😉
- You do NOT have to be Catholic or a part of St. Louis to attend this retreat. However, it should be understood that the retreat will be lead from a Catholic perspective, that embraces respectful dialogue with all other perspectives.
- You DO have to be between the ages of 18 & 22. If you are in college, but don’t fall into this age range, just contact Katie to discuss before registering.
