Restored Retreat



February 24-26, 2023
at Breezy Point Resort,
Breezy Point, MN

Thank you to all who attended Restored!  We hope you had a blessed experience with the Lord and continue to grow in relationship with God.  Please keep your fellow retreatants and plans for the next retreat in your prayers.

2023 information

Registration opened December 7th.  Registration is closed.  Thank you to all who registered!  

Please note: Lodging on-site (either in the hotel or a cabin) is an important element of this retreat weekend.  While it might be counter-intuitive for someone who is local to stay at the resort, we do require all participants to stay on-site to allow for sufficient opportunity to step away from their everyday life to be with the Lord.  We invite you to enter fully into Jesus's invitation: "Come to Me, all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." (Matt 11:28)

This retreat has limited capacity, so Diocese of Duluth residents are given first priorty.  If your primary residence is outside of the boundaries of the Diocese of Duluth, you may click here to complete a non-resident interest form.  We will contact you if we can invite you to register.  

This is not the same retreat as the FUSE retreat hosted by the Brainerd parishes.  Please make sure you have the correct retreat and dates before registering.

To see lodging options and registration costs, click on the registration link. When you get to the Active registration website, click on "View more details" for an explanation of each rooming situation and rate.

If the retreat is full, you may register for the Waiting List for free.  We will contact you if a spot opens for you.

Check-in time will be 5:00-6:45pm on Friday, February 24th at Breezy Point Resort (9252 Breezy Point Dr, Breezy Point, MN). The retreat will begin at 7:00pm on Friday.  Please note: Supper will not be provided on Friday night, so please pick up food on your way or check-in early and find a local restaurant nearby.  

Check-out will be at Noon on Sunday after Mass.  Breakfast will be provided Sunday morning, but lunch will not be served.

Cost:  The cost depends on the rooming you choose.  All fees for the retreat are included in the registration/rooming fee when you choose your rooming preference.  This fee includes snacks later on Friday night, three meals on Saturday, and breakfast on Sunday.

Roommates and Cabin Sharing Requests:
During registration, you are given different lodging and rate options.  Click on "View more details" at the registration site for an explanation of each rooming situation and rate. You may pay to have your own hotel room, share a hotel room, or share a cabin with others.  If you choose a cabin room, you can choose to pay to have your own bedroom or you will share a room with one other person.  If you choose to lodge in a cabin, you will be able to list the name of your preferred roommate, your spouse (if applicable), and any others you prefer with whom to share a cabin.  Cabin space is limited, so register soon! 

If you choose to lodge in a hotel room, you may pay to room alone or with one other participant (spouse or person of the same gender).

If you later hear that someone you know is attending and want to room with that person or share a cabin with that person or other people, please let us know ASAP and we will do what we can. 

Spouses will share a hotel room or cabin room, but need to register using the Husband and Wife rates to pay their fees.  You can put more than one "session" in your "Shopping Cart" to register your spouse at the same time.

Infants under 1 year are welcome to attend with their parent(s). Please note that you will be bringing your infant when you register. 

Payment/Refund Policy:
During registration, you will pay a non-refundable $75 deposit.  The deposit goes toward your registration fee.  
You may pay in full at the time of registration or you may choose a payment plan in 1, 2, or 3 installments.  Final payment will be required by February 11, 2023.
There are no refunds after January 16, 2023 unless we are able to fill your spot or you are sick and cannot attend.

Registration closes February 13th, but Cabin space is limited, so register soon!

This could be a special gift for a loved one or a great opportunity for you, especially if you have never been on a retreat before.
