"Finding Joy and God, Even in the Desert Days of Our Lives"

A Women's One Day Retreat


You are cordially invited to CCD's one day women's retreat. A time for us to pause, sit, examine thoughts and hearts, and reflect and seek our God of joy, courage, and satisfaction.

One thing we women know about ourselves...

We are aware of those around us and their needs- we feed others.

Let's come together and spend a day, right at the convenient but peaceful location in Douglaston, and quietly lay before God and ourselves the needs inside of us. 

Joy, passion, fear, anxiety, hunger, worries, emptiness, boredom, numbness, the desire to find purpose and satisfaction, the desire to find safety and have our deepest needs met - chapter 63 of the book of Psalms shows us that these needs and feelings are universal and cross time, culture, and history. 

The God who met the author of Psalms chapter 63 thousands of years ago is the same God who will meet us today, wherever and however we are. 

Come with a friend

Invite a fellow mom or a neighbor

Come by yourself

We believe that if you are a person living in this odd and interesting world of ours, then you will find something relatable and helpful at the retreat

Come lightly

Come simply

Come as you are

Come seeking 

Come and let's see how this goes

When we gather together
