Boundary Waters Retreat Trip 2019

BWCA 2019.jpg

Must register in December; permits and arrangements must be made in January.

The Boundary Waters Adventure for High School, young adult, and parents, will take place June 16–21, 2019.  Interested in an adventure that will help you unplug from the noise of life, and instead plug into God?  The Boundary Waters Canoe Area provides a retreat in God’s creation that will challenge you, strengthen you, and deepen your faith in God and in others from our parish family.  Our first step is to form a team before Wednesday, December 12 so that our outfitter can purchase proper permits. If you want to be a part of our team, please complete the commitment form found on the kiosk in the gathering space and pay the referenced non-refundable deposit to the front desk on or before December 12. We will hold 3 meetings which are mandatory in the Spring of 2019, one of which is a ½ day of canoeing nearby.   Contact Randy in the office Tues-Friday, 515-402-7433 with any questions you may have in the meantime.
