It’s no easy task to find a space capable of hosting the kind of retreat you want, or that can ensure attendees will be well taken care of throughout their stay.
One of the most important decisions is finding a time of year that is suitable for your members or attendees. Below we’ll explore five reasons to consider hosting your religious retreat at the beginning of the year.
One major advantage of hosting a retreat at the beginning of the year is that it makes planning attendance a piece of cake. At the beginning of the year, people will have spent the holidays with family and friends, and are unlikely to have vacations or getaways planned.

*Important information about online payments in Europe
A new European Union law is going into effect this month that will require an extra security step for online payments – called Strong Customer Authentication (SCA). This is to reduce fraud for cardholders, and all organisations with EU customers are required to comply.
Thus authentication checks will become more frequent & applied at random when you make a purchase or donation online. When you do any payment or donation in our websites you may see a pop-up from your bank or card issuer requesting a username and password, a code sent to email or text, or any other authentication method supported by your bank or card issuer.
If you have any questions or issues with one of these authentication methods please contact your bank or card issuer directly.
