We will have a full hot breakfast each day thanks to Ron Bagwell. Saturday lunch – sandwiches. Steaks Saturday night – YUMMM!! Friday night will be burgers and brats as usual.
Our retreat leader will be Fr. Todd Dill, past Assistant to the Rector at St David’s. The theme will be: “Discipleship 2017” – Five Markings of a Modern Disciple. So, come and get a “Spiritual Renewal”!!
