Blessed Retreat

April 17-19, 2020

Based on our heightened concerns for our at risk population, we have decided to postpone our April Blessed Retreat until this coming fall.  Additional details will follow.

The Blessed Retreat is specifically designed for the developmentally delayed community of adults and is a great opportunity for men and women 18 and over to experience a great retreat designed specifically for them. It is our privilege and pleasure to offer a one of a kind retreat such as this for this community of men and women.

Event Registration

Registration is $40 per person and includes a Friday evening meal, all meals on Saturday and breakfast on Sunday. This retreat is designed with fun activities, breakout classes, crafts, praise and worship segments for everyone. For this reason, each "blessed" man and women will need to be accompanied by a "sponsor". The sponsor can be their legal guardian, staff, or parent.

This event is designed for "blessed" men and women who"

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

If a "blessed man or women has medical needs requiring skilled nursing care during the event, they must have their own skilled nurse accompany them throughout the event.

Sponsors Responsibility

  1. Accompany their "blessed" man or woman at all times throughout the retreat
  2. The sponsor will administer any medications needed throughout the event including any emergency medications potentially required.
