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! More details here.

Men’s Group activities are open to men and masculine-identifying, non-binary and LGBTQ+ people. Anyone associated in any way with the Melrose UU Church can attend the Men’s Group activities. Church membership is not required.
