Wednesday, July 20
9:00 AM - 3:00 PM
Diocesan Campus in Green Bay

Are you a parish leader who needs some time to rest in the Lord? To renew your sense of mission? To restore balance in your life? If so, you are invited to a day of refreshment and retreat through the healing presence of the Holy Spirit. There will be time for Mass, music, self-guided activities, a healthy lunch, and conversations about mental, physical, and spiritual wellness.

There is no cost to attend due to the generosity of the Bishop’s Appeal. This retreat day is brought to you by the Discipleship & Parish Life Mission Team and the Catholic Charities & Living Justice Mission Team. To respect the more personal nature of the day, registration will be capped at 35 parish leaders.
