BOYP Service Retreat 2016
We will focus on home repairs to prepare a few families for the incoming winter season. We will give you all you need to know about home repair, just make sure to bring appropriate clothing.
We’ll have time for community building and spiritual reflection. If love is our mission, mercy is the way! Our theme for this year is a quote by Bl. Mother Teresa, “Faith in action is love and love in action is service.”
The cost for the entire retreat is $50. It includes five meals, materials and donation to the mission. Don’t let cost deter you from joining us, scholarships are available! If you cannot make it all three days, the cost is partial: $35 for two days and $25 for one day.
What to bring: sleeping bag, pillow, personal hygiene goods, snacks to share (optional), working clothes, working gloves (optional) and working glasses (optional). Also, bring anything you’d like for reflection and prayer.
Carpool will be available but limited. Please send Edith Avila Olea an email if you’d like to carpool or wouldn’t mind driving to lead a carpool group.
