Thank you to all who joined us at Parish Retreat. Please enjoy the resources, photos, and session audio found on this page!

Chosen Family

What a joy it was to spend time together learning, playing, and knowing one another. From learning from Dr. Erin Moniz's deep knowledge of relationships to toe tapping tunes by The Hillsiders, enjoy these galleries of photos from the retreat, our Chosen Family photo session, and staff outing day below!

During one session we were asked to pose for family portraits with the individuals seated at our table. An exercise in getting comfortable with our neighbor quickly. The results were wonderful!

Lastly, photos from our post-retreat staff time at Cidercade!
