* Our Modest Dress Code Policy reminds you that your choice of attire may be distracting from our retreat. Please be respectful of our policy as follows:

  • Clothing cannot contain disrespectful language or images.
  • No clothing can reveal under garments.
  • No clothing containing spaghetti straps that are not covered.
  • No clothing that exposes any midriff regions.
  • No leggings or skin-tight yoga pants can be worn as pants. Please style these with a skirt!

Cell phones are a huge distraction and detrimental to your personal faith-enriching retreat experience.  For this reason, all cell phones brought to the retreat will be collected by the retreat leader and returned at the end of the retreat.
