Women's Retreat

Join us for the annual Women's Retreat Sponsored by the UTUUC Women's Connection. The theme this year is "Fire in the Belly!"

The Annual Women’s Retreat this year will be held at the Carmelite Spiritual Center, Darien, IL the weekend of Feb. 24-26, 2017. If you register for Saturday only, this includes 3 meals Saturday and all activities, and you may commute for Friday and Sunday. If you register for the whole retreat, we start at 6 pm Friday for dinner and end Sunday morning with a closing ceremony. Included are five meals (one Friday, three Saturday and one Sunday). All bedrooms have a full bath and two twin beds. You may register to have one of these rooms as a single or a double with a roommate (see prices below).

You may pay by bank account withdrawal (if registered for bank account withdrawal at UTUUC) or cash or check made out to UTUUC . You may send check payments to the Registrar: Jenny Earlandson, 802 Highland, Oak Park, 60304 or give them to a retreat committee member at coffee hour: Please make checks out to "UTUUC" with "women's retreat" in the memo line.

If you requested payment by bank account withdrawal your retreat fee will be invoiced on Monday, February 4, unless other arrangements are made. If you pay by check, your full retreat fee is also due by February 4.

CANCELLATION POLICY: The Carmelite Center requires us to commit to the number of retreat attendees before the actual retreat so they can prepare the facility and plan the meals. Therefore, you will be charged a fee if you cancel after February 4 unless we find a substitute to fill your room.

Please consider adding a donation to help a sister who might not otherwise be able to join us. Each year we hope to offer partial scholarship assistance to enable all interested women to attend. If you are able, please add to your registration an additional gift to our Scholarship Fund. Your contribution will also help fund the Senior-Retiree-Student rate.

If you are in need of scholarship assistance, contact Maureen Crotty in confidence at 708-603-5560. Scholarship recipients may choose the “Saturday only” option or the “Full Weekend—double room” options only. Deadline for requesting a scholarship is January 25.

You may register by bank account withdrawal (if registered at UTUUC) or cash or check made out to UTUUC. You may send check payments to registrar Jenny Earlandso or  give them to a retreat committee member at Coffee Hour. Questions: email Jenny at Scholarship assistance is available.
