The Love & Truth Seminar
Our goal is to help you to live out Pope Saint John Paul II’s call to build a civilization of love and truth. How exactly are we going to do so? Just as the great saint would have: a retreat away from the world, filled with prayer, outdoor adventure, community, sacraments, worship and incredible lectures and conversation.
The Seminar begins in one of America’s most beautiful river valleys, the Shenandoah, for two days of camping, hiking and canoeing. We’ll then head over to DC, home of the JPII Institute and located just next to the National Shrine, for the remainder of the Seminar.
Your Cost: $385 Early Bird until May 31
($400 starting June 1)
Actual Cost: $825 per person—we fundraise the rest! Donate Here >
