To schedule any retreat for your school or group
CrossRoads retreats are designed to challenge and inspire young people to see the world with a broader, deeper view.
Each experience is an exploration of what it means to engage fully 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!
This virtual journey, created for teens and adults alike, takes participants through the city of Louisville to deepen and expand their relationship with the city. It invites participants to see the forgotten and erased parts of Louisville’s history through the lens of social justice. It provides time to reflect open-heartedly on how to both claim the past and shape the future of this place we call home. Schools, churches, organizations, and groups purchase the entire program (including videos, journals, and discussion prompts) and facilitate it themselves.
Seeking the Shalom of the City
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.
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
SEND DOWN THE FIRE
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.
