Parenting Retreat

This fall, parents and primary caregivers are invited to participate in our Parenting Retreat in late October. 


Parents and primary caregivers of minor children are invited for a day of formation, fellowship, and refreshment. This free event will provide an opportunity to get to know other parents from around the Mitten, along with diocesan leaders.

Together, we will explore parenting as a Christian vocation, ways to “grow Christians,” a spiritual practice opportunity, and an opportunity to discuss ways that the broader Episcopal community can support parents and children as they grow in faith.

Participants’ children are also invited to attend, joining in concurrent programming led by area youth ministers.

This event is hosted by the Eastern Youth Region of our dioceses and is open to all, regardless of location.

Please contact Beckett Leclaire, Youth Missioner for the Eastern Youth Region, with any questions –


This event is open to all parents and guardians of minor-aged children in Eastern and Western Michigan as well as the participation of their children. There is no cost to attend. Lunch, Dinner, and snacks will be provided.

Sign-in table will open at 8:30 with our program officially beginning at 9am. We plan to depart at 6pm.

Please register by October 8th.
