Each quarter, CA House offers a weekend retreat. MLC residents who go on the Fall Retreat, get the chance to get to know their new housemates and start forming the close relationships unique to the Multifaith Living Community. This year we will be traveling to Westminster Woods in Sonoma County.
Our Winter Retreat is open to MLC residents and non-resident participants and typically offers attendees a day long getaway to relax and recenter with friends new and old. Less structured than Fall Retreat, the Winter Retreat is a chance to have fun, explore, and build upon the relationships we have developed over the last quarter.
Spring Retreat is our service trip. Usually it takes place in our own backyard, in Davis or the Sacramento area with a local service agency. In the past we have done service projects with the Yolo Food Bank and the Sierra Service Project. This retreat allows attendees to reflect upon our value of social justice, through serving our community. In the past, service events have included construction projects, serving meals at shelters, yard clean up, etc.
