Educator CPR Retreat with Fr. Joe Kempf – August 2 & 3, 2023

Time: to

“Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.”  – Jesus, in Mark 6:31

All educators are welcome to our Educator CPR (Come, Pray, Recharge!) Retreat which will be held here at the beautiful Marianist Retreat and Conference Center on Wednesday and Thursday, August 2 & 3, 2023.

For this retreat, our guest presenter is Father Joe Kempf, a talented and inspiration priest currently stationed at Most Sacred Heart Parish in Eureka, MO. Father Joe will be with us through lunch on Wednesday, and the remainder of the retreat will be brought to your by our retreat center staff members.

This one or two-day overnight retreat (you choose!) offers a quiet place to pray, rest, and recharge. We invite all educators —teachers, youth ministers, PSR catechists, principals, campus ministers — to slow down and give the same care and kindness you’ve shown to your students to yourself. Self-care is not selfish! All talks, prayer experiences, and worship opportunities are optional on this retreat. Participate in as much or as little as you’d like. Listen to talks, worship, bask in the experience of a chair massage, and enjoy our beautiful woods and trails, river views, and quiet outdoor prayer experiences. A detailed schedule listing a variety of options will be available upon arrival. All meals are included. Plus, there’s an evening social with the opportunity to relax and enjoy each other’s company – or you can skip the social and head to your room for some alone time if that would make you happier! This is your time to pause and give your mind, body, heart, and soul what it needs most, and to support others who want to do the same.

Single Day Option: Wednesday from 8:30 AM — 6:00 PM (includes 2 meals) – $60

Overnight Option: Wednesday from 8:30 AM — Thursday at 10:00 AM (includes 3 meals and overnight accommodations) – $120
