Please find below the daily schedule for families and for those who come on individual retreat. It should be used as a personal guideline to help you structure and benefit from your days with us.

This schedule is not intended for church groups and conventions who follow their own program. However, it may be helpful to use as a guideline when such groups build their own schedules.

We look forward to having you with us.
