BOYP Service Retreat 2017
THIS YEAR’S SERVICE RETREAT HAS BEEN POSTPONED DUE TO SAFETY CONCERNS. MORE INFORMATION COMING SOON.
Join the Board of Young Professionals for our 3rd annual service retreat in Pembroke, IL from Friday, September 29 – Sunday, October 1. Hopkins Park, a neighborhood of Pembroke, is among the most impoverished towns in the nation.
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.
