Mark your calendar for our very first retreat together! This will be a great opportunity to shake things up by getting out of town and engaging in your faith.
Friday night will be a time to gather and hang out. There will not be any programming until Saturday morning. This allows flexibility with time and cost. Our first session begins at 9 a.m. Saturday. It takes three hours to get to Lacrosse.
Coordinate rides and room arrangements on your own.
Cost: $20. Lodging, food, transportation on your own.
We have reserved a block of rooms at the Hampton Inn. Cost is $129 per room. Book after you register. Just say you’re with the Holy Name of Jesus Retreat: https://www.hilton.com/en/hotels/lsedohx-hampton-suites-la-crosse-downtown/
