Re: "Refresh, Restart, Renew!" Retreat Reminder Registration Deadlines
Date: May 6, 2010

We would like to remind you of the upcoming "Refresh, Restart, Renew!" retreat on May 27-30, 2010, and inform you of the registration deadlines. The program is designed for young adult BCs who have experienced a relationship outside of the Blessing, who would like to reevaluate their faith, renew their spiritual life or seek a clear path to the Blessing. The program begins at 10:30 AM on Thursday, May 27th, and concludes Sunday, May 30th at 5:00 PM, in the New York City area.

The "Renew" retreat provides a safe and supportive environment for participants to experience the unchanging love of God, connect with others who have had similar experiences, and consider a personal path to realize the Blessing. Parents may attend with the agreement and approval of their participating son or daughter. Parents whose children are not yet ready to attend may participate themselves. All parents will be in a separate parents' group, to give young adult participants the freedom to connect, communicate and support one another.

Registration deadlines

Register and pay by May 7th for an "early bird" discount.

Register soon… space is limited and is filling up fast For location details and registration information, write to us. Participants are expected to respect the privacy and confidentiality of others at the retreat. If you want more information or would just like to talk to someone, please contact any of the retreat staff listed below, or call Mrs. Debby Gullery. For those who prefer to discuss in Japanese, Mrs. Hiromi Stephens is available.

We are looking forward to being together and connecting in heart, in a real way. Please share this invitation with anyone you know who may benefit from this retreat.
