At HNOJ we believe that in the midst of our busy and demanding lives, it is essential to take a break, step away, and make room for God to move powerfully in our lives.
And what better way to do this then as a family! HNOJ's 7th WINTER WEEKEND will be held in February 2023! We will have music, games, VBS style sessions for the kids, talks and small groups for the adults, Mass, Dinner, and Eucharistic Adoration. Families with kids of all ages are welcome to attend. We encourage teenagers to sign up to help out with the younger kiddos, but any confirmed teen may join the adult sessions as well.
New this year! You may have noticed we changed the name of this event from Family Retreat to WINTER WEEKEND! Along with this name change we've made some tweaks we hope you will enjoy. While the weekend will still hold the beautiful mix of fun, family, and faith, we have a few changes we are excited to share with you.
- New Resort! We will be at beautiful BegBee Hive Resort in Paynesville, MN on the shores of lake Koronis. Check out their website to see all the incredible amenities and potential cabins.
- New Weekend! We will head out the 2nd weekend of February. This moves off of a 3 day weekend when many of our families had other commitments. We hope this increases availability for our friends!
- New Schedule! We will be altering our schedule to maximize our time and so that we can finish by early Sunday afternoon.
- New Teen Program! Middle School and High School aged teens have always served at our children's sessions, but now we will be offering Teen events just for them.
