We will spend the week living out and exploring their four Gospel Cornerstones of Prayer, Community, Simplicity and Service. 

Retreatants can expect to serve local homeowners through home repair and the ministry of presence. They will also practice hospitality to their fellow retreatants by staying back one day as the home crew cooking, cleaning and creating a welcoming environment all.

This is an amazing week to learn about Catholic Social Teaching, environmental justice, and the richness of Appalachia.
