Life in Christ Retreat

Attend a Life in Christ Retreat
What is it?

A life in Christ retreat is a mini-retreat with a maximum result - designed to be a fun and positive way to experience Jesus powerfully and grow in faith as Catholics. Here are some significant bullets:
It is doable sacrifice for the Lord: four hours a day, for three days in a row (Thursday 6-10 pm, Friday 6-10 pm and Saturday 8am-Noon).  This commitment has the potential to affect you as powerfully as going away for a three day retreat and you get to sleep in your own bed! It's close to home, at Immaculate Conception or St. Joseph Churches. It is extremely well organized, making the most of every minute. You will feel like you have accomplished much!  There is an incredible variety of experiences. You'll not be bored and time flies.  Each day begins with a first-class meal, suppers or breakfast.   The retreat is led by fellow Petersburg Parishioners with staff member Lisa Fullenkamp coordinating.
