2018/2019 School Retreats Theme

Our overall theme for this year is "Purpose”. As we do each year, we will explore the truth that God made us to know, love and serve Him and to one day be united in heaven with him forever.            

With our youngest students, we will learn about how God has a purpose and a plan for each of us that far surpasses anything we could ever imagine for ourselves. We will then explore how to stay close to God and live this awesome plan He has for us using our "GPS".            

With our middle students, we will be learning how to use the time God has given us "on purpose." We will consider the different ways we use our time (ex: video games, sports, friends, etc) and challenge the youth to a healthy balance by offering the truth that these joys in our life are a gift from God, but are only a "free sample" of the actual joy and purpose that can be found in Him.            

With our oldest students, we will help the youth to have a better understanding of how God's will works in their day-to-day life. We will then be exploring how to live up to that call and inside of His will for us “on purpose” using such things as the sacraments, prayer, and seeking growth in ourselves to become who God has made us to be.

2019/2020 School Retreats Booking Information

FacetoFace Ministries is excited to be planning our School Retreats for 2019/2020. 

These Retreats will bring the Catholic faith to life through music, keynote talks, activities, prayer, and more.

The retreat targets each age group perfectly and leaves schools enriched and challenged.

We offer one-day whole school Elementary retreats, Junior High Retreats, and retreats for specific grades.

Please read the information below for bookings costs, available dates, etc.

2019/2020 RETREAT COSTS:

$1100 + shared travel expenses (hotel, meals, & mileage.)


• Weeks we have available for booking are found below.
• Retreats will be booked on a first come basis starting on April 23, 2019.
• We strongly encourage booking a week as a School Division.  Single schools will not be able to reserve a week on their own. You will need at least two other schools from your area that also want to book that week before we can block it off for you. If you are a single school, please contact us and let us know that you would like to book and we will see if we have any available dates when we are in your area.
• Due to the intensity of the road life, we will be booking only one week at a time. We are still happy to serve all the schools we have in the past; we just may have to do it in two trips as opposed to one.
• Cancellation fee: Due to the inconvenience of the other schools who booked in the same week, we are charging a $300 cancellation fee to put towards travel expenses for the week in order to keep travel costs at a reasonable rate. This fee can be waived if you are able to find a different school in the area to book that date.
• The website will be updated regularly with available and booked weeks for your benefit of knowing what is still free.
