The Diocese of Burlington will be hosting three retreats over the next few months and invite you to join us. There will be a Young Adult Retreat, the Annual Men’s Conference, and the Annual Women’s Retreat. While the Men’s and Women’s Retreats are repeat events, the Young Adult Retreat is a new retreat aimed at creating community and spiritual nourishment for those in our diocese aged 20-39.
