A Holy Waste of Time: Self-Discovery Retreat for Young Adults

August 17, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - August 19, 2018 @ 4:00 pm


With day to day life making so many demands on our time and energy, it’s easy to forget the importance of rest. Remind yourself about the renewing power of relaxation by joining us for A Holy Waste of Time! Young adults (ages 18 – 35) from throughout the Diocese of Olympia are invited to this annual weekend of fun, friendship and faith at St. Andrew’s House, a gorgeous rustic lodge situated with a breathtaking view of the Hood Canal and the Olympic Mountains just beyond.

In the spirit of time-wasting, feel free to choose your own adventure: kayak, paddle-board, and swim the beautiful calm waters of the Hood Canal, take a hike on the forest trails nearby, or simply read in the lodge or sun on the deck. We’ll also offer some optional activities: yoga, beginning ukulele classes, and arts ‘n’ crafts. Each evening we’ll gather to share and celebrate the ancient rite of Compline.

Creative home-style cooking is a St. Andrew’s House tradition; meals include nurturing entrees of locally-sourced foods and delicious fresh desserts.

The per-person price includes two night’s lodging and all meals and activities. Single/couple/family bedrooms are available – please specify your preference. Kids are welcome.

Sign-up now; this event sells out quickly!
