Blessed Retreat 2020


Due to the uncertainty of additional guidelines that may be issued in regard to the COVID-19 pandemic and to help protect the health and safety of attendees and staff, we have regrettably decided to cancel this year’s Blessed Retreat.


The “Blessed” Retreat is an event specifically designed for Developmentally Delayed adults (18 and older) who:

  1. Are accompanied throughout the retreat by a sponsor/family member.
  2. Can actively participate with minimal assistance from their sponsor.
  3. Are comfortable in crowds and not bothered by loud noises.
  4. Are willing to participate in the activities of the retreat.
  5. Are capable of self-care of personal needs with minimal help and supervision from their sponsor.

If a “Blessed” man or woman has medical needs requiring skilled nursing care during the retreat, they must have their own skilled nurse to accompany them throughout the retreat.


  1. Accompany their “Blessed” man/woman at all times through-out the retreat.
  2. The Sponsor will administer medications needed through-out the day, including emergency medications potentially required.

A registered nurse(s) and first aid station will be located on site if the need beyond normal administering of medications or other issues should arise.
