Exploring the full potential of our limits and our giftedness.

To be a saint—which is something every believer should aspire to become—means to be not less, but more human.

This retreat will attempt to nurture the courage to embrace our humanity. In talks and times of silence, we will not only explore some sought-after but often eluding practices on our way toward being more genuine people (for example, being grateful) but also those aspects of our humanity that are often seen as obstacles for human flourishing, such as our limits and weaknesses.

Scholarships are available. To apply for a scholarship, first register for a retreat to secure a space. Then apply for a scholarship after paying the $100 deposit. In the event of a full scholarship, your deposit will be refunded.

Plan to arrive at Laity Lodge anytime after 3:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 21. The retreat will officially commence with a 6:00 p.m. reception at the Great Hall and will conclude Sunday, March 24, following an 11:00 a.m. brunch. Click here for directions and more info on how to prepare for your visit.
