All Parish Retreat | Important Update for Attendees!

Jun 08, 2017

We are scheduled to meet again this year at the Claggett Center in Adamstown, MD ( on June 17 and 18. More than 120 people have signed up, so it should be a wonderful time!

If you are coming, there are THREE THINGS you need to do in advance:


  1.  On Sunday, June 11, bring in a box to be used in our box journal project.  There’s a big moving box in Baxter Hall for the boxes — no larger than a shoebox, please!
  2. Before June 17, read the E-gospel that was sent out on Friday, June 8 for more info on the Box Journal project — and for the questions for reflection, you need to think about before next weekend.
  3. On June 17, bring a photo of yourself. Could be a current one or one from any age.  Nothing larger than 5 x 7, please!

If you have questions about the following, please contact

It’s shaping up to be a lovely opportunity to “be in community together!”
