All Saints' Parish Retreat August 4-6 at Camp McDowell Information
The Parish Retreat is a time for our faith community to relax, rejuvenate, and renew together! This is a weekend of fellowship, food, and fun in "God's Backyard"! Enjoy favorite camp-style activities such as canoes, swimming, hiking, and singing. Renew old friendships and make new ones. Relax in a rocking chair and visit with friends, then cheer on your fellow parishioners during the Talent Show. Childcare will be offered (for children ages 6 months through 5 years) during designated times. It's quality time with quality people! Give yourself this gift of time spent together with your family and friends before the busy-ness of fall kicks in!
