Eight to ten families (Grandparents welcome, too!) come together to form a Christ- centered community for the week or weekend. Mass and other family liturgies are complemented by skits, presentations, family sharing, peer group discussions, and fun activities. All join in community tasks, such as helping with cleanup after meals. Retreat themes focus on family enrichment and spiritual development through affirmation, communication, reconciliation, commitment, and spreading the “Good News.”
Scheduled recreation and free time, with ocean swimming (only 1/2 block from our house) in season and visits to historic Victorian Cape May (only 3 miles from our house), are features of all family retreats.
