ALSO: PRAYER, SPIRITUAL REFLECTION, NETWORKING, IDEA-SHARING, MASS; IT’S THE RETREAT YOU DESERVE!

Make the INVESTMENT in your youth ministry leadership:
Cost is $100 per person ($140 for single room), which includes lodging, three meals, national conference-quality presenter/trainer, opportunities for Mass and prayer. Is this more expensive than most things we do? Yes. Is it BETTER than most things we do? Definitely! This is simply the most comprehensive, in-depth, YM-specific formation experience OYYA offers.
HOW TO REGISTER:
Because we need to place an order with the retreat center, it is important that you register on or before January 16th. Thanks!
(remember – select “Pay Later”)
OYYA can also issue an invoice if your parish is willing to pay for your participation. Simply call or email Emily 219-769-9292 x282 esutton@dcgary. org
At registration you will choose between single or double occupancy. The registration fee for those choosing double occupancy (one roommate) is $100 (inclusive of all retreat expenses). If you have a roommate request, you can include that during the online registration process. If you select double occupancy and do not include a roommate request, we will assign a roommate for you. You may also choose to have your own room. That rate is $140.
Rooms include: private bathroom with shower, individually-controlled heating and air conditioning, towels and linens are provided. Handicapped-accessible rooms are available upon request.
While we certainly recommend lodging at Lindenwood, commuting may be an option for those in the eastern part of the diocese. The commuter registration rate is $60.
Married couples should select double occupancy and list each other in the roommate preference box. Only twin beds are offered at Lindenwood.
During online registration, select PAY LATER, and kindly ignore the notice that reads “registration not complete without payment.” Your registration will be received.
Payments will be collected on-site at check-in. Cash or checks accepted. OYYA can also invoice. Credit card payments can be made online using link above, or on-site.
Escape the busyness of your lives to a place where you can reconnect with God and the beauty of God’s creation, in all its winter splendor! The Lindenwood Retreat and Conference Center, a ministry of the Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ, is 40 miles east of Valparaiso, and miles away from your stress.
“Why so far away?” Because it will truly feel like a retreat, and it’s actually not as far away as you might think. An easy drive east on U.S. 30, Lindenwood is about 40 minutes from Valparaiso, about an hour from Merrillville, and about 75 minutes from Hammond. Consider carpooling: prior to the retreat we will contact all participants to help, using the email address given at registration.
When you arrive on the grounds, you’ll understand why we chose Lindenwood! It provides us the perfect setting to grow in faith: excellent lodging and meeting space, delicious meals, and the unforgettable Ancilla Domini Chapel.
