Lenten Retreat Day for Parents

Parents and Primary Caregivers of minor children are invited to start their Lenten season with a daytime retreat. This free event will offer an opportunity for fellowship, formation, and refreshment.

Sessions will include exploring parenting as a Christian Vocation, ways to “Grow Christians,” a Spiritual Practice opportunity, and an opportunity to discuss ways that the broader Episcopal community can support parents and children as they grow in faith. Concurrent programming will be provided for children led by youth ministers from the region, and both lunch and dinner, along with snacks throughout the day, will be provided for all participants.

This event is hosted by the Eastern Youth Region of our dioceses and is open to all, regardless of location. Please contact Beckett Leclaire, Youth Missioner for the Eastern Youth Region, with any questions at bleclaire@eastmich.org.
