Give the Gift of a Laity Lodge Retreat
Have you ever considered giving the gift of a Laity Lodge retreat? Each year, dozens of folk who love Laity Lodge share the experience by giving a retreat to their children, friends, or neighbors. What better way to encourage those you care about and want to see grow in their faith?
You can give a gift of a specific retreat (for example, the Labor Day Weekend retreat). Or you can give a gift certificate that can be used for a wide variety of Laity Lodge retreats. Simply call Ann Jack at 830-792-1230, and she'll help you with the details.
Keep Laity Lodge retreats in mind for Christmas, birthdays, and other festive gift-giving occasions.
