Family Retreat set for Memorial Day Weekend
May 21, 2012



The Family Weekend Retreat at Circle Lake Family Retreat Center in Pinehurst is set for May 25 to 27. It is inspired by the Catholic spirituality of the Lay Apostolate of Jesus Christ the Returning King, which is administered by the nonprofit organization, Direction for Our Times.

Weekend highlights include family games and competition; adult and teen group sessions; supervised faith activities for kids; Mass and Eucharistic adoration; campfires; canoeing and other family fun.

Scott and Gina Bergeron are one of the host families of the Catholic Family Retreat. They hosted their first retreat in 2006 after attending a family retreat at Circle Lake in 2005.

"The purpose of the retreat is for families to escape the noise and distraction of their daily life and spend quality time with each other in a quiet and tranquil setting," Scott Bergeron said. Gina Bergeron added, "This allows the Holy Spirit to work in the lives of the families to strengthen their unity and help them on their unique path to holiness."

Circle Lake is located 40 miles northwest of downtown Houston and operated by the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston. It is designed as a place where family members can grow closer to God through prayer, faith sharing, learning and playing together.
