Sacred Path: Two by Two - Married Couples Retreat

November 17-19, 2023


Join us at the Oregon coast for Sacred Path Two by Two – A Retreat Weekend for married couples – to reflect on our individual relationships with God, and in our marriage as we walk the sacred path of our lives.

(Note to previous attendees: join us for a “repeat retreat” - these will be new sessions and opportunities for reflection.)


Led by Tom and Kimi Tomaszek, co‐directors of The Five Loaves Apostolate and Our Lady of the Lake staff members, and Fr. Charles Zach, OLL Parochial Vicar as Spiritual Director, this weekend retreat includes engaging presentations, prayer, personal reflection time and as a couple, and group fellowship. We will celebrate Sunday Mass, a Nuptial Blessing, have opportunity for individual confession, and special time to explore lovely Cannon Beach during the weekend. 


The Retreat Fee is $475 per couple which includes two dinners, two breakfasts, retreat fees and two nights housing at the beautiful Cannon Beach Christian Conference Center. Each couple has a private room and bath. The retreat begins Friday, November 17 at 4 PM and ends Sunday the 19th at Noon. For information contact Tom Tomaszek, or 503‐636‐7687.
