Men’s Group

The 2024 Men’s Retreat was held on April 5-7 at Craigville Retreat Center, Centerville, Cape Cod. There were 19 participants. The weekend included lively discussion sessions, get-to-know-each-other activities, meals and evening games. Walks around the grounds and to the beach were enjoyed by many.

The Men’s Group provides social activities such as the Men’s Retreat, sporadic Hasty Retreats, game nights, and the Potluck & Yankee Swap

Men’s Retreat

Each year since 2002, the Men’s Group has organized a weekend retreat in early Spring. A group assembles in the weeks prior to plan the retreat’s activities and discussion topics. There is fun, food, fellowship and thoughtful conversations with participants returning home refreshed and energized!
