Retreat House Fund
This five-year fund is to help make the Iskali Retreat Center a reality.
ABOUT OUR RETREAT MINISTRY
Iskali’s retreat ministry is at the core of our mission. Through our faith-awakening retreats designed specifically for young Latinos, participants have a deep experience of God’s loving and healing presence, are welcomed into the life of the Church, are challenged to break from unhealthy habits and lifestyles, and are motivated to become the best of themselves. Peer-led by Iskali volunteers, our retreats also give our young people the opportunity to serve and share their testimonies with their peers.
