Quick Guide to Booking Your Retreat.... in 5 Easy Steps!
STEP 1: Read through the Program Offerings and select the retreat that will best serve your community at this moment in time!
STEP 2: Review the Sliding Scale and Incidental Costs to establish your retreat budget. This information will help you determine whether you will ask participants for a small program fee, or whether you will choose to co-host a retreat with another parish or organization. Remember to be in touch with me anyway if the costs are a stretch, I want to work with everyone.
STEP 3: Determine where AT YOUR FACILITY you will hold the retreat. Rectory? Meeting room? Conference Center? Religious Center? Main church? Chapel? All of my retreats are hosted on site at your location.
STEP 4: Look at your calendar and select the three dates that work best for your parish or community. Especially during special liturgical seasons (Advent or Lent), it's best to have several choices that will work for your community. In general retreats will begin with a Friday night session, and have three sessions on Saturday, and one on Sunday morning.
STEP 5: Get in touch with me to begin the process. Be sure to include your phone number when you call or email!
