Register for the Parish Retreat!

If singing songs around a campfire, horseback riding on a tree lined trail, and finding time to take a mid-afternoon nap are all things that appeal to you, then don’t wait to sign up for the Christ Church Cathedral Parish Retreat!

The first weekend in December, we’re headed out to the piney woods of Camp Allen in Navasota, TX. We’ll make base camp at Campsite #3; lakeside cabins and conference center hotel accommodations are available but in limited quantities. 

Festivities begin on Friday evening at the campsite. The coveted silver ladle is up for grabs, as we start the weekend with the 12th Annual Chili Cook-off! On Saturday we’ll enjoy a morning of education for adults and crafts for children and youth with Chris Mabon, who will talk about friendships.

The afternoon plays host to a selection of fun activities like canoeing, horseback riding, skeet shooting, and a nature walk. After dinner we’ll roast marshmallows and sing songs around the campfire before hitting the hay. A lake side Eucharist on Sunday morning will be the perfect way to close out the weekend before heading back to town. Day-trip option is available for those who want to participate but can’t make the whole weekend. 

Register online or sign up in the cloister on Sundays.
