Retreat for Young Adults Siena Center offers ‘Service and Spirituality’

Have you had a service experience or retreat that touched you deeply? Or have you always wanted one but haven’t had one? Are you asking probing questions about your spirituality? If so, spend a week immersed in service and reflection on your spiritual journey. This week is designed for adults in their 20s and 30s who have enjoyed—or are curious about—service opportunities and assembling meaning in their life. Service projects will be in the Racine area, within driving or walking distance from Siena Retreat Center. Spiritual reflection activities will be individual or with a group, with variety throughout the course of the week. More than a resume-builder, this week connects you with mentors, peers, those in need, and yourself.
