Fall Men's Retreat
Grace Church has a very long history of hosting weekend retreats every two to three years for the men of our parish. These retreats offer a wonderful opportunity for fellowship, as well as thoughtful discussions and reflection in a low-key environment; and if everything goes well, the participants frequently come away with a real sense of spiritual growth. We are still pondering our specific retreat discussion theme, but you can anticipate honest and interesting discussions which stimulate reflection around how our faith informs our “real life” behaviors and relationships.
This year’s retreat will take place from Friday evening, October 4 until Sunday morning, October 6 at the Stony Point Retreat Center in Stony Point, NY (in the Lower Hudson River Valley about one hour from Madison).
Total cost for two night’s accommodations (double occupancy) and all meals is $240 per person. Whether you have participated in a retreat with us before or would be a first-timer, we hope you will consider joining us the first weekend in October.

2019 Youth Pilgrimage High school teens traveled to Virginia for hiking, boating, worship at the National Cathedral, and a special immersion experience that explores the challenges of hunger, poverty and waste at the Shepherd's Spring Retreat Center in Maryland to participate in the Heifer Global Explorers program.
