our retreats

CrossRoads retreats are designed to challenge and inspire young people to see the world and their faith with a broader, deeper view.  



Each experience is a gospel based exploration of what it means to be a disciple in the here and now.  

We offer a variety of immersive retreat experiences ranging in duration from 6 hours to 7 days.

CrossWalk is a week-long summer immersion into the heart of our city. Envisioned as an alternative to “service trips,” CrossWalk invites young people to step out of their comfort zones and into radical relationships with individuals who've been marginalized and disenfranchised by our society.

Are you a local rising sophomore or recently graduated senior? Maybe you're somewhere in-between. Register now for our local CrossWalk! 


Follow Me

Follow Me is CrossRoads' most popular retreat offering. This overnight retreat uses Icon Prayer to invite young people to examine the labels, stereotypes, and prejudices associated with refugees and immigrants; people experiencing homelessness, poverty, and addiction; adults with developmental disabilities, and others.

Price: varies



Footprints is a daylong examination of discipleship. This retreat recognizes Jesus’ public ministry and the ways in which he left his mark on the world - through his footprints, fingerprints, and friendships. Just as Jesus welcomed the extremely poor, the tax collector, the prostitute, and the leper, we encourage students to welcome into their hearts those labeled "undesirable" by society.

Price: $35 per participant

Send Down the Fire is a daylong Confirmation preparatory retreat. Like all CrossRoads retreats, Send Down the Fire offers young people the opportunity to view their faith through the lens of relationship building and justice-seeking.  Confirmandi examine our human oneness while seeking the gifts of the Holy Spirit within the marginalized stranger and themselves. 

Price: $35 per participant



All One is a 6-day retreat that invites participants to explore our oneness and connectedness to all of creation: our marginalized brothers and sisters, plants and animals, and the Divine. We explore this connection through a retreat partnership between CrossRoads and Plowshares Farm Center for Education and Spirituality.

$375 per participant (includes lodging and meals).  Scholarships available. 

“A gift opens the way and ushers the giver into the presence of the great.”
