About this Event

A student testimonial of StMu Retreats: "[I want]...new attendees to experience the true bliss, safety and acceptance that I felt when I attended the last one. " 4th yr Biology student

Welcome to this year's Fall Retreat! Our previous retreat was truly an amazing experience. Every person brings something really unique and special to the weekend, so we look forward to you being a part of what will be a memorable weekend.

This year we have TWO amazing speakers in Fr. Peter and Leanne Salel, who have prepared some really creative and interactve sessions on our themes of living freely, fully, and faithfully. AND there happens to be two more f-words going on this weekend...

Food and FUN. StMU student retreats are about enjoying creation and community, so we leave lots of time for laughter and conversation at meals and around the fireplace. Speaking of fireplace...

Let it SNOW! Yes the white stuff MAY show up this weekend, but let that add to the magic. Bring a hat and gloves and embrace a crisp walk through the nature trails. I've ordered extra bags of firewood and hot chocolate will be added to the coffee bar. :-) It's central heating in the lodge, but just in case bring an extra blanket if you have one. (Don't forget a towel and personal cleaning products, they don't provide that.) Which, by the way...

What are the sleeping arrangements? The lodge has large open rooms with a spacious bunk style room for females on the main floor, and similar room for males on the lower floor. Full bathrooms in the lodge - there is a wheelchair accessible washroom on the lower floor but not the main floor. The rooms should stay warm with central heating in lodge.

Can I bring someone along? Absolutely. We still have beds available, so please do bring a friend with you. Just let me know by Thursday night so I make sure to pick up enough food for everyone.

What time should I get there? Anytime after 6pm. We'll be sitting down for dinner around 7pm. Let me know if you're planning to be any later. It's just under a 2 hour drive from Calgary. Speaking of....How do I get there? Part of the fun of the weekend is the road trip, so get on board a vehicle already heading up. I'll be more than happy to connect you with someone who is a great trip companion - and a highly skilled driver. :-)If you do need to get there on your own, here are the directions:Rundle Mission LodgeComing from Calgary:Hwy #2 North to Hwy 13 West (Wetaskiwin/Winfield overpass).Travel west 35 km to Hwy 771.Turn right (North) past Pigeon Lake Provincial Park.
