If you wish to organize an outdoor morning retreat for your family, coworkers, friends, or parish group, we will gladly work with you to make this happen!

New meditations every month: Each month has a unique theme. Sr. Karla creatively provides simple meditations which introduce participants to personal reflection, inspiration, and fellowship. All are welcomed, come even if you feel a bit “rusty” in your faith or if you are not Catholic.

What to bring: Bringing an open attitude to allow God to surprise you is top on the list! Apart from that, please bring a pen, hat, sunblock, water, and something to sit on (folding chair, cushion, or blanket). Do not bring a Bible or journal; you will receive retreat material (in a folder) for you to write in and take home.

Where we will meet: Our meetings begin at 9am with a simple meet & greet at Beeks Bight Parking Lot in Granite Bay State Park. From there, we will walk 13 minutes to our prayer spot which overlooks the beautiful Granite Bay. Restrooms are located in the parking lot and there is ample parking for all.

IF YOU GET LOST, CANCEL, OR WILL BE LATE: Contact Sr. Karla (415) 767-9072

Join every month & bring a friend or two!

Here is a piece of what our reflection included:

“Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do.”

Pope John XXIII
