Retreats at St. Francis

Youth Spring Retreat

Join us for our 19th Annual Youth Spring Retreat, which will be held March 8th through 10th. Our youth retreat is something amazing. It’s a time that we bond with others in the Youth Group and form lasting, Christ-centered relationships with each other. We hope that everyone will be able to join us for this action-packed weekend filled with Bible study, games, community building, singing and fun—all based on our theme “Fear: Conquering the FEAR that holds you back.” During this retreat we will look at all the things that are holding us back and keeping us sidelined to what God wants to do through and with us. Our very own Youth Senate will lead us in some fun games and discussions.


We will be headed back to Country Lake Christian Retreat in Underwood, Indiana! This beautiful campus provides all the accommodations found at All Saints (our previous venue) and then some. To be guaranteed a spot, you must sign up and pay by February 24th at the very latest! Due to Country Lake needs we can’t accept anything submitted after this date, so please mark your calendars!


The cost for this weekend is $105. If scholarship money is needed, please speak to Raleigh Langley. We will leave St. Francis on Friday at 4:00 p.m.—some of you might need a quick release form for school—and will return on Sunday at 2:00 p.m. Please contact Raleigh Langley or Libby Garfield to reserve your spot today, as space is limited!


You need to bring:

· sleeping bag, fitted bottom sheet and pillow

· toiletries/towel

· clothes to fit the season (gloves, jacket)

· water bottle

· running shoes (if you would like a morning run)

· Parent Consent Form (if not already turned in)

· a small to medium size duffel bag or soft suitcase (Please pack lightly!)

Men's Retreat

Treat yourself to the laid back world of St. Meinrad – come relax, refresh, rejuvenate your relationship with the Lord, as well as great fellowship with the men of our Parish. Tom Welch will facilitate the workshop portion of our time leading us to make deeper contacts and become mentors both inside and outside the church. There will be opportunities to join the monks for a service in the Archabbey. Plus, there will be time for golfing, kayaking, spelunking or napping…and some great German food.

Youth Fall Retreat

Each year in the Fall & Spring, the Youth Group goes on a retreat together. 


A church retreat is something magical. It is a time to bond with others in the Youth Group and form lasting, Christ-centered relationships with youth and adults alike. We hope that your children will join us for this action-packed weekend filled with Bible study, games, community building, singing, and fun.

Women's Retreat

Each year, the women of St. Francis in the Fields take a few days away to rest, relax, and recharge. We invite a speaker to communicate God's truth and Good News to us, taking time apart from the bustle of everyday life to hear the Gospel in fresh, new ways. Don’t forget to invite your girlfriends and family members!
