A Summer Holiday for Adults 45 and Over (formerly the Senior Retreat)

August 17 - 22, 2018

Come and spend time with us at the largest of the California Missions, Old Mission San Luis Rey built in 1798. You will be spending time on beautiful grounds where your senses will come alive: watching the sunrise and sunsets, hearing the birds sing and the bells ring, tasting good food, breathing the scent of roses, touching the pottery and succulents you can plant while you are here. There are a variety of activities to participate in including:

  • Lectures by International Biblical Franciscan scholar, Tom Herbst, OFM
  • Sessions in Tai Chi with professional instructors, Renee and Richard Wing
  • Class in the art of fermenting  vegetables with Joan Culver, Nutritionist and Master Composter
  • Leisure time in the Art Center with acrylics, pottery, and crafts
  • Swimming in a beautiful pool
  • Walking a pilgrimage through the Mission Cemetery
  • Visiting the Stations of the Cross
