Do you have children attending St. Joseph School in Cottleville, MO for the 2018/2019 school year? Then you don't want to miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
Please join us for spiritual getaway on January 11-13, 2019 for our first annual "Mom's Retreat. " The retreat will be hosted at the Bethany Retreat House, owned and operated by the Dominican Sisters.
Bethany Retreat House is located in a wooded area with a small pond in Dickson, Tennessee (which is approximately 5 hours drive time- carpooling will be welcomed).
As you join other moms for this spiritual getaway, you will have a private room in an area of silence, meals cooked for you by the Sisters, and a beautiful Eucharistic Chapel available to you all day and night. We plan to have a Dominican Sister, Sister Mary Madeline Todd, O.P., as the speaker for this retreat, with a local priest offering Mass and opportunities for confession, details TBA.
The fee is $170.00 (payable through Eventbrite). There are only 40 spaces are available, and we do expect to sell out quickly. However, in the event that space allows (openings still available after September 30), other parish moms will also be invited. We will maintain a waitlist of 20.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?
We do encourage carpool, but you are certainly welcome to fly if you prefer. If driving, we would leave St. Joseph at 8:30am Friday with an approximate arrival at the Motherhouse at 3:00pm. Those who would choose to fly would want to arrive in Nashville prior to 3:00pm. We would have Sunday Mass at the retreat house and return to Cottleville by 6:00pm that evening.
How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
What's the refund policy?
Refunds are available up to 30 days in advance of the retreat.
Can I update my registration information?
